Recipe Notes

It's a really delicious Pasta dish. Easy to make which is something that really works for me. Although I enjoying cooking, I don't enjoy spending endless time in the kitchen. 

The chilli is my idea and just adds a little bite to the dish. 

Suggestion, you can add some biltong powder to the sauce and finish off the plate with sliced biltong and parsley before you serve. YUM!
