Aliens, Eskimos........?These Lumache pasta are rather cute looking and the name sounds like ‘low ma chi’ (mom) in Cantonese. What do you think they look like to you? Alien, astronaut, lady with tudung (headscarf).......or....? Well, I like to buy different types of pasta and cook them in different ways. First I boiled the pasta to make them soft. Then I bake the pasta with sausages and potato. I ended up with a nice aromatic baked dish with soft and flavourful pasta below it. This is my recipe for Baked Lumache with Sausage and Potato.
Lumache Pasta, 1 cups, boiled in hot water until soften
Tomato sauce, 5 table spoons
Hickory BBQ Sauce, 2 table spoons
Potato, 3 pcs, boiled in water until soft and cut into large chunks
Pepper, a dash
Smoked Chicken sausage, 3 pcs, cut into small pieces
Onions, 1 large, cut into small pieces
Mozzarella cheese, ½ cup
Olive oil, 2 table spoons
Put the softened Lumache pasta into an oiled baking tray. Add the rest of the ingredients on top of the pasta. Pour the tomato and hickory BBQ sauce over the top. Add a dash of pepper and olive oil. Baked in preheated oven at 190 Dec C for 15 to 20 minutes.
