Grilled Sausage Pasta with Chimichurri


This happened during my chimichurri-craze-phase. I had some chimichurri leftover in a bottle in the fridge and it had been there for a week. Before it got funky I thought it might be nice to toss some pasta with my favorite green sauce.

Instead of bacon (which is my favorite for dry style pasta), I used grilled pepper sausage. I grilled all four sausages from the package and used only one for the pasta.


I topped the pasta with fresh parsley and a generous dash of chili flakes. I thought it was very nice and it made for a very satisfying lunch. How I miss pasta!

  3. This plate of pasta is so sedap giler! Look at the sausages that made me scream.
    You should bottle all your chimichurri for sale. I will do the selling since it is an overpowering food enhancer! First, I need to try your sample ahead.

  4. Thank God for gluten-free pasta - one of the very few things that actually taste like the regular stuff. Many of the gluten-free cookies and others aren't exactly edible, much less the same. Post on gluten-free pasta in my blog tomorrow!

    1. I am so curious about the gluten-free version of some foods. But I didn't buy after looking at the price. LOL!

  5. I have yet to taste chimichurri. There is an eatery called ChimiChurri in Jaya One where we can customise a wrap or sandwich or bowl by choosing a meat, a fresh vege, a carb and a sauce. Maybe one day I will eat there and choose the Chimichurri sauce to see how the sauce tastes like.
