.cooking in malawi.

chik’n and green bean pasta in a white sauce
This recipe is good for 2 small stomaches (or a cute dinner guest wearing hot pink shorts!) or 1 really hungry person!

½ cup "chik'n" soya (TVP)
½ cup green beans (snapped)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 cup spaghetti noodles
2 tablespoons butter (the more you add the more flavor you’ll have but at least to cover the beans)
1 cup of milk or (substitute, I used powered milk)
1 tablespoon flour
Italian seasonings (oregano, thyme, basil, etc.) al gusto
Salt & Pepper al gusto
*Boil your noodles (I like mine a little al dente) the classic test is to throw the noodle on the wall and if it sticks then it’s READY!
*Melt butter in pan.
*When butter is melted add minced garlic and snapped beans, let simmer for a few minutes

*Add flour and mix into bean/garlic sauté well, let cook for a few minutes (keep stirring!!)
*Add salt, pepper, and seasoning as you like.

*Add TVP and milk (or substitute) and whisk vigorously.
*Let simmer until desired thickness!

Buen Provecho!
