Hěn hào chī Penne

Hello folks..First of all Thanks to all those who religiously read the blog and appreciate the recipes and also to those who complained about Zaykedar being less active in the last month. I have taken them quite seriously and all set to share new recipes with more enthusiasm the proof of which is the off-beat name which i have given to this Pasta recipe- Hěn hào chī Penne .The name  may sound too weird for some and too exotic for others :-) Actually i was surfing a site which mentioned few Chinese food words and phrases and suddenly this word Hěn hào chīc caught my attention which means- Delicious. So this is how the dish got its name :-) Also i found it quite apt as this time i have made the penne in chinese style as i was all set to make the optimum use of the Schezwan sauce made a day before. 
The recipe is very easy and simple and not to mention yummmm. Take a look at the recipe:

  • 1 pack Wheat Penne (250 gms)
