Piri Piri and Basil Pasta

For Day 3 in the last week of BM #46,under the theme Pizzas and Pastas I had planned to post Pizza from the scratch..but when I checked the pics I realized that the final pic was not clicked. This was very unlike me , but I guess I missed out as the little kids were around and could not wait.

This pasta comes from my son's collection .I had some boiled spaghetti and he transformed it into a very very delicious meal.With him , I can never get a perfect recipe, he likes to use whatever is handy and at the same time he needs all the exotic ingredients. The worst is he wants the kitchen to himself with just the staff boy who is his helper. Anyway once he finished cooking this I immediately asked him the details and jotted down.
