BUTTER CHICKEN PASTA
Finger Lickin Butter Chicken Pasta
Here’s the truth. I have no idea how I came up with this recipe. A lazy saturday night lead to me cook up a quick, yet comforting, dinner where I had to use what I had on hand. I found some leftover butter chicken in my fridge and I came up with this dish on the spur of the moment.
I love creating recipes with what’s on hand, so I decided to use the noodles as a ‘pasta’ base, and create this Pakistani inspired spicy, creamy Butter Chicken Pasta with the remaining ingredients to go along. With a few twists, out came a perfectly balanced and super satisfying Pakistani Italian fusion that worked in every way, and came together in under 30 minutes
