I've been hearing of Presto Pasta Night from my sister Gay so I decided to try out this dish for the event. It uses squash and dried noodles (miking tuyo). This dish is common in my father's hometown Pila, Laguna.
Ginisang Kalabasa at Miki (Sauteed Squash w/ Noodles)
1/2 k kalabasa (squash),peeled and cut into 1/4" thick
100 gms miking tuyo (dried noodles)
1/4 C shrimps, chopped (you can use ground pork)
1 medium tomato, diced
1 medium onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 Tbps soy sauce
3 Tbps cooking oil
1 C water
pepper to taste
Sauté garlic until golden brown. Add onion & tomato, sauté until wilted. Add shrimps, pepper and soy sauce. Add squash, stir-fry for a minute. Pour water and cook until squash is half-cooked. Put dried noodles. Simmer until squash and noodles are tender.
My first time to share this noodles dish with the Presto Pasta Nights community, hosted this week by Ruth of Once Upon a Feast.

Bistek is the Filipino style beefsteak. But don't expect to be served with a regular steak and mashed potatoes. This is cooked differently. Meat, Kalamansi or Lime juice, soy sauce and onions are the main ingredients. Our family favorite is the pork and liver bistek.
Pork and Liver Bistek
1/4 kilo Pork Tenderloin, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1/4 kilo pork liver, sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 pcs. kalamansi (key lime)
1/2 c. soy sauce
2 large red onions, sliced
1/2 C cooking oil for frying
Fry pork and liver until cook. Set Aside. In the same pan,
fry onions until tender. Add back the pork and liver
and cook for about 1 minute. Add soy sauce and simmer
for another minute. Add the juice of kalamansi
before turning off heat. Serve with rice. Enjoy.
