RECIPE: TKG's Pesto Pasta with Shrimp

Our pantry is always stocked with pasta noodles and sauces so that whenever we crave for pasta, we can readily cook it at home. Sharing here's a quick and very easy to prepare Pesto Pasta with Shrimp.

Ingredients:

500g pasta 
Dona Elena Ricotta & Smoked Provola Cheese Pesto Sauce, 150g
Clara Ole's Filipino Style Pasta Sauce, 250g
Dona Elena Sliced Black Olives, 3 tbsp (or more)
Shrimps, 300g (or more) *** peeled
Butter
Ground Black Pepper 
Rock Salt
Truffle Olive Oil (optional)



Boil the pasta in a pot until almost al dente, take it out and transfer to a strainer and rinse with water. In a separate pan, add a pat or two of butter, and cook the olives. Add the pasta sauce once the butter is melted. Pour in a bit of water so that the sauce won't thicken before adding the pesto sauce. Once it begins to boil, add in the shrimps. I peeled the shrimps except of the head because it will make the sauce more flavorful. Add a pinch of ground pepper and salt, before adding in the pasta. Transfer to a serving dish once its cooked. Add a dash or two of truffle oil, mix well, and bon appetit!

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma.

Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west.

For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
