I have really no sense in cooking!
I've seen recipes and videos on how to cook Aglio Olio, but still failed for twice...
First time too dry and bland -.-
Second time too salty!
And finally the third time is quite a success ones!
*maybe I should thank the bacon..haha*
Here are the ingredients I used for 3 portions:-
White Button Mushrooms 8pcs
Olive Oil 4tbsp
*I roughly use 3 tbsp of oil for 100g portion*
First of all, heat up the pan and pan fry the bacon without oil...
and while frying it, boil a pot of water with salt and some oil to cook the linguine until the texture & saltiness you like and get it drained & set aside by then.
When the bacon is turning brown, turn off the stove and set it aside.
But still, remaining the bacon fats in pan!
*p/s: why lah bacon shrink? T__T*
Bring in the oil and pan fry the garlic in medium fire until it turned slightly brownish
Then add in the chopped mushrooms and cook until they released the liquid
*until they shrink, literally*
Then add in the fresh basil leaves and a pinch of salt
and add in the cooked bacon, and let them stay in the pan for like 2 mins in medium low fire then turn it off~
Finally, add in the linguine and mix well together with chilli flakes, parseley/basil, and black pepper
