Cooking Macaroni With Fish Stew And Baked Beans


 A plate of macaroni cooked with baked beans and fish in tomato sauce
This macaroni came in when I needed to do emergency cooking. For normal cooking, you can add sauteed vegetables, minced meat or even cook with more fish than this cos if you cook one whole pack of macaroni with this quantity of fish, some will taste fish while others will go without.

Do not cook with too much
water. T's better to add more water when the pot is drying up than drink water sauce while eating your meal.

Final Checking for salt

A yummy plate of macaroni with some sprinkle of fish. When fish is this tiny, I try to avoid stirring the food too frequently while cooking, know why?

Macaroni cooks very fast, maybe that's why I go for it sometimes cos I don't like spending long hours in the kitchen and don't really miss it like I do swallows with Naija soups. I can go a whole year without macaroni and spags but children love them the same way they love Indomie noodles.
Enjoy!

      Actually, what I should say is although macaroni is a type of pasta, it is made from a different type of durum wheat as the others. But the point is, THIS particular one here is pasta, NOT macaroni. Bye!

    6. OK, THANKS FOR THE CORRECTION AND RECORRECTION. Whether pasta or macaroni o, all is from durum wheat and gives us carbohydrates just like indomie noodles.

      How does macaroni taste sef? I would like to know.

      Delete
    7. I just searched Google images and got almost the same images for both pasta and macaroni oooo,

      Macaroni meaning: "a variety of pasta formed in narrow tubes"

      Pasta meaning:" a dish originally from Italy consisting of dough made from durum wheat and water, extruded or stamped into various shapes and typically cooked in boiling water."

      All answers from Google.

    Madam Eya I suggest you buy an iron sponge and vim. Scrub your fry pan thoroughly to remove those burnt bits. You shouldn't be cooking in such a pan. Dat black coal will change the taste of your food. It is dirt and so should b washed off. Same goes for the back of your pots. Please be hygenic.

      Anon 7.34, sorry dear, when I see people like you, what I feel is pity. Only God knows what you are passing through in life that made you this bitter. But whatever it is dearie it will definitely pass, just look unto Jesus, pray against depression and bitterness. It is well ok? Aunty eya pls forgive her, it is not easy when you see somebody that is everything you ever wanted to be and nothing seems to be going your way. Allow her to vent so that she doesn't commit suicide, pls forgive her

    6. Anon 7:34am, what demon posessed you to make such a comment and insult Eya? Were you even trained at all? Imagine the insults you directed at a married woman with kids. Do you even know God? Do you not have a conscience? In your small twisted mind you are being mischievous ba? Do you not know that you WILL give acct of every idle word you speak (or type)? When i read your comment, my first instinct was to insult you and your generation, but fortunately for you, i know better. I just feel immensely sorry for you, and i really pray that you find Jesus. You better apologize to Eya.
