Penne Pasta with Bolognese Sauce and Coconut Milk

On with 0 Comment
Classic pasta recipes can be given a twist by adding a unique ingredient with the sauce base. Today's pasta includes fresh coconut milk that gives a strong and unique flavor to this recipe. Since bolognese sauce contains generous amount of meat, vegetarians can replace it with classic tomato sauce. I've used canned bolognese sauce in this recipe, but nothing can be better than a homemade version. Similarly, you can prepare fresh coconut milk at home from grated coconut pulp. Depending on your taste, you can also include spicy seasoning to make a slightly fiery version of this pasta. You can also replace Penne with spaghetti to get a slightly different taste. Let's make this nutritious and irresistible pasta.
