This is the most QUINTESSENTIAL Libyan Dish. Heavily influenced by Italian cuisine, this Libyan dish is Pasta in a tomato stew. Any type of pasta can be used but more often than not its either Ditalini or broken up Spaghetti. I learned how to make this dish in only one quantity: A lot. The recipe below is for an entire pound of pasta, which really is on a box. It may seem like a lot, but it will go go go.
- 1 Onion, diced
- 2 garlic gloves
-1 chicken cut and quartered.
- 5 tablespoons olive oil
-2/3 cup tomato paste
-1 tablespoon salt
-1 1/2 tablespoons Bzaar
-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
-11 cups of water (will be used in parts)
- 1lb Pasta of your choice
What to do:
1. Medium-high heat, in a medium pot, add oil and onions. Let sauté.
3. Lowering the temperature, add tomato paste, bzaar, salt and pepper and mix together. Allow this mixture to cook for 3-4 mins
7. Break the pasta into 2in' segments.
9. Once pasta has completely cooked, serve and enjoy!!
