KM’Tips :

  1. Searing Perfection: When cooking shrimp or chicken, a quick sear enhances flavor. Ensure the skillet is hot for that beautiful golden color.
  2. Freshness Matters: Opt for fresh parsley—it not only adds color but a burst of freshness that elevates the entire dish.
  3. Pasta Precision: Cook pasta al dente; it ensures a perfect texture, marrying well with the sauce and proteins.

Substitutions and Variations :

  1. Protein Play: Experiment with seafood like scallops or even tofu for a vegetarian twist.
  2. Spice Spectrum: Adjust paprika and pepper for varied spice levels, tailoring it to your heat preference.
  3. Veggie Boost: Toss in sautéed bell peppers or spinach for added nutrients and a pop of color.
  4. Sauce Swap: Try a yogurt-based sauce for a tangy alternative to mayo, keeping it light and refreshing.

Make it Healthier :

  1. Smart Pasta: Opt for whole-grain or legume-based pasta to increase fiber content.
  2. Lean Protein: Choose lean chicken breast or shrimp for a protein-packed, low-fat option.
  3. Lighter Sauce: Mix Greek yogurt with a dash of honey as a mayo alternative, reducing overall calorie count.
  4. Veggie Overload: Increase the veggie ratio for added vitamins and minerals, making it a wholesome meal.
