Adobo will remind me always of the best time of my young adult life, being a dormer. Every time I went home to Elbi, my mom would give me a big jar filled with adobo. I would keep this jar in the shared ref, hoping no one will steal my food. Whenever I am sick of eating instant noodles, my mom’s adobo was always a welcome change.
Here are my takes on adobo pasta. Both recipes were adapted from my Yummy cookbooks.
Shred the adobo meat and fry until crispy
Heat some oil. Add a syanse (ladle) full of all purpose cream and another syanse of adobo sauce. Mix-y mix-y. Add more adobo sauce if you like.
Put the cooked noodles in the pan and mix until noodles are coated with the yummy creamy adobo sauce.
Transfer the pasta in a plate and top with the crispy adobo bits.
Heat some butter. Add the adobo sauce. I love how butter makes the adobo sauce interesting.
Add sugar to the sauce. Mix. Taste. Mix. Taste. Stop. You will end up eating all the sauce.
Pour the sauce in a plate of pasta. Top with tomatoes, fresh basil and bite-size adobo chunks.
Serve with a smile!
