Usually with pasta, it’s either a tomato sauce or a mushroom one – but what’s life without a little rebellion? Inspired by a Southern rendition a chef once made me that combined the two, I decided to make my own simple version at home, using Nativa’s Gluten-Free Teff Fusilli. I took a shortcut by using some shop-bought pasta sauces – but if you have more time on your hands, you can make these from scratch.
I love how with fusilli, you get all that saucy goodness caught in-between the pasta twists, whilst the slightly sweeter taste of the teff compliments the sauce nicely; I found the teff pasta had a great, long-lasting al dente texture too.
This recipe is really versatile; you can switch out the chicken with pork or beef if you prefer, plus add in more veggies (and colour!) with red, green or yellow peppers.
