Saturday morning breakfast

This was a ham and cheese pasta I made several weekends ago, which received such rave reviews from the girls that I decided to recreate it for our family barbeque last Sunday. The version below is for adult consumption also, so I added bacon and onions.
I'll give you the recipe for the kid's ham and cheese pasta, and tell you how to modify it for adults at the end.
Kids' ham and cheese pasta

This portion serves 2.
You'll need:
1 clove garlic, chopped finely
100g (a couple of slices) smoked ham
100g (two handfuls) pasta of your choice
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Liquid amino to taste
Sesame seeds and parsley to garnish
1 tbsp olive oil

Cook pasta as per packet instructions, drain and set aside. In a separate pan, heat olive oil and add garlic. Saute until fragrant and add ham. Stir fry for a minute or two, and add pasta. Fold in shredded cheese and mix well. Add liquid amino to taste and garnish with sesame seeds and parsley. Serve hot.

For the adult version, in addition to the above ingredients, you will need 1 medium sized onion, sliced and 100g of bacon. Again, the recipe serves 2, so multiply the ingredients by the number of people you want to serve.

Cook pasta as per packet instructions, drain and set aside. In a separate pan, heat olive oil and add garlic and onions. Saute until fragrant and set aside. Fry up the bacon until crispy and when that is cooked, add ham. Stir fry for a minute or two, and add pasta. Fold in shredded cheese and mix well. Add liquid amino to taste and garnish with the onions, sesame seeds and parsley. Serve hot. The bacon and onion add a nice crunch to the dish.

These are some of the other yummy food on Sunday - hard boiled eggs with sambal, my mother's signature dish.
Steak and salad with Japanese soy dressing. Yum!
It was a weekend filled with good food, fun, laughter and family.
