Ditali Rigati, Italian Pasta with Cream Cheese and Hickory BBQ Sauce

It is Ditali Rigati (try to pronounce with some Italian accent)......not ‘tarik tali’ ahhhh! Ha ha ha! A half packet of this pasta has been sitting in my kitchen cabinet for quite while. Ditali Rigati is actually Italian pasta shaped like the gears in machines. My kids love the shape of this pasta and they think that it look very cool! I thought that it would be nice if I cook it using the cream cheese that I have in my fridge. As for the aroma, I used hickory barbecue sauce which already has herbs such as oregano and thyme in it, so it save me the trouble and time of adding all these stuff or making a bouquet barni (French for a bunch of herbs, eg thyme, parley and bay leaf). This is one of the quickie recipes that I cook for supper!

Ditali Rigati Pasta, 250 gms,
Boiled in hot water until it soften
Minced Chicken Meat, 150gms
Onions, 1 large
Tomato paste, one cup
Sugar, ½ teaspoon
Cream Cheese, 2 table spoons (you can use any other type of cheexe)
Hickory BBQ sauce, 3 table spoons
Salt to taste
Olive Oil, 3 table spoons, (can use normal vegetable oil)

Thyme, (optional), a little Heat up pan and pour some olive oil into it. Sautéed onions until it caramelized and then add in the chicken meat. Stir the mixture over slow fire and then add cheese. Add tomato paste, sugar, hickory BBQ sauce and salt to taste. Pour the sauce over the cooked pasta and garnish with lettuce or fresh tomato.
