Hakka Mee Pasta

COOKING TIME: 12 minutes
Hakka Mee Pasta
  • 350g spaghetti
  • 200g minced pork
  • 4-5 tbsp Filippo Berio olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh basil, thinly sliced
  • -Pickled green chilli or jalapeno

1 Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil over medium high heat. Once boiling, add pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes, until al dente.
2 In a large frying pan or wok, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the garlic and saute for about 1 - 1/2 minutes, until lightly golden.
3 Add the minced pork and saute for about 3-4 minutes until cooked through, then add the chicken stock and simmer over medium heat for another 3-4 minutes. Taste and season with light soy sauce and black pepper, as necessary.
4 Add the cooked spaghetti from Step 1 into the minced pork sauce and toss until well-coated.
5 Serve immediately, and garnish with thinly sliced fresh basil and pickled green chilli. Note: You may substitute pickled green chilli with pickled jalapeno. For kids, you may omit the pickled green chilli and serve with grated Parmesan cheese instead.
6 For this dish, you can use either spaghetti or tagliatelle. I chose spaghetti as it's BabySumoKids favorite type of pasta. Filippo Berio olive oil is an excellent olive oil with a mild taste and golden colour, suitable for cooking and pasta. The minced pork is sauteed with garlic and olive oil, and simmered in chicken stock to create a flavorful sauce for this dish. Toss the pasta in the sauce, and serve with fresh basil and pickled green chilli. Everyone in my family loved this, so I'll definitely be making it again :)
