- 2/3 cup ketchup
- 2 tsp garlic chili sauce (I use the Thai version)
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tsp horseradish
- Blend and chill
- Adjust the tastes to suit your liking!
I also had some leftover roasted potatoes. Never one to waste things, I threw them in. If you want to make this soup more substantial you could add leftover roasted or boiled potatoes like I did or you could throw in some leftover rice or pasta. They'll all work!
You could also make this recipe with shrimp or a vegetarian version with black beans in place of the chicken.I think I'll go open a Corona... Salud!
Note the little ridges in the pasta. They will help hold the sauce.
This is a great pasta recipe that is kid friendly and can be as cheap or as expensive as you want. While the pasta is boiling we're going to make a quick homemade sauce that may turn you off from ever buying store made sauce again! (but if you want to cheat and buy a jar of sauce, it's okay, I won't tell)
If you don't have orecchiette, any smallish pasta will do. You can even use elbow macaroni if you want. You can bump this up a notch and use organic pasta or whole wheat pasta. This dish is often served as the pasta course for big gatherings in Italy. If you want to start with antipasto (meats and cheeses), then a salad, then a pasta course, then a meat course.... well you get the idea. Honestly? I just had this pasta dish for a meal. Plenty of food!
