Quick Comfort

After eating out twice this week, going to sleep with indigestion from eating too much wonderful food, we had to take it slow last night. My poor digestive system has been in over drive.

I made a very simple pasta dish, the sauce takes as long to cook as the pasta. This is a Nigella style dish - quick and easy, but with lots of flavour.

Shrimp Pasta with Tomato Pesto

500g Shrimp (these were the very small shrimp)
1 Thinly sliced Onion
30ml NoMU Tomato & Chilli Stir
30ml Tomato Paste
10ml Crushed Dried Chilli
10ml Dried Italian Mixed herbs
Black Pepper
Juice of ½ a lemon
15ml Sugar
10 - 15ml Fish Sauce

Fry the onions until soft.
Add the rest of the ingredients (except the shrimp) and stir in enough water to make a sauce.
Reduce the heat and allow it to simmer slowly while you cook you pasta.
Check the seasoning on of the sauce and adjust if necessary.
Just before the pasta is ready, add the shrimp to the sauce and let it cook for about 30 seconds.
Cook your pasta - which ever shape you enjoy the most.
Serve the pasta and sauce together and enjoy!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
