The health benefits of these capsicums surpass many other fruits as they contain far more anti-oxidants that derive from its rich colors. I wanted to have red too but I was afraid that my guests may find it too spicy especially when taken raw. Instead, I added cherry tomatoes and prawns to add a shade of red to the Wafu Spaghetti.

To complement the pasta, I made some Chilled Aromatic Earl Grey Pork Loins to go with it. It was a satisfying meal for both our sight and taste.

(Serves 5)
5 Capsicum (3 green, 3 yellow)
½ pkt of Spaghetti
200g of Prawns
10 Cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp Extra-virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp Salt
½ tsp Chilli peppercorn
½ bottle of Wafu sauce
6 cloves of Garlic
Parsley for garnish

  1. Cut off top (cap) and dispose seeds from capsicums. Remove stalk but keep “cap”. Don’t waste. Wash and use the fruit from the “cap”. Dice it and set aside. Rinse all other capsicums and turn them upside down to dry. Halve the tomatoes and slice the garlic.
