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.
