5 Exciting Pasta Recipes to try at home


Who doesn’t enjoy a delicious pasta dish every now and again? Do you have any favorite pasta recipes? From spaghetti to macaroni, pasta has quickly become part of the staple foods in Nigeria. They weren’t as mainstream in the 90s when rice – in any format (rice and stew, jollof rice or fried rice) – generally topped the cuisine charts for many households. The case is different today, however, as the consumption of pasta continues to rise, with more and more flour mill factories setting up shop to produce enough to meet local demand.


In this post, we’re going to be sharing five exciting pasta recipes you can prepare easily that will make you fall in love with pasta even more.


  1. The Jollof SpaghettiHomemade Jollof Spaghetti Recipe

This recipe is probably more common, as it is prepared just about the same way you’d prepare jollof rice. The ingredients you need to prepare the jollof spaghetti include ground pepper, fresh (chopped) tomatoes, tomato paste, Mamador Pure Vegetable Oil, dried garlic, curry, thyme and some scent leaves to spice things up. As we all know, getting the right ingredients together is only half of the process. The other half is the method of preparation. Have a look at our cookbook to see how it all comes together to produce that exciting spaghetti jollof we’ve all come to enjoy.

The Spaghetti Bolognese sauce recipe is as Italian as pasta recipes get, seeing as it originated from there. It is called Ragù alla bolognese in Italy. To make bolognese, you’re going to need at least 500g of meat, fresh tomatoes (blended), tomato paste, onions, garlic, thyme, curry, carrots (diced), Mamador Pure Vegetable Oil and some mushrooms (optional). The method of preparation is outlined in our cookbook.

The Penne Pasta is a hollow, cylindrical type of pasta that cooks just as quickly as the spaghetti or any other kind you’re used to.
