Though it became all the hype on Tik Tok, it’s actually known as a famous supermodel’s favorite pasta to make what everyone now calls ‘Gigi Hadid Pasta’. I mean, that’s what I called it and still do. My friend made this for when we went on a trip to the beach last year, and yes, pasta is indeed perfect for a beach meal. Curious as to why everyone is obsessed with this? Try it yourself with this recipe!
Tik Tok’s Famous Pasta
- Cook up your choice of pasta. In this recipe, we’re using the ribbon pasta or according to its fancy name ‘farfalle’ but any pasta will be just fine. When you’re draining the pasta, save ½ cup of pasta water for the sauce later.
- Heat up a pan and add in the olive oil, the chopped red onion, the chopped garlic and the tomato paste. Mix them together.
- Pour in 1 cup of heavy cream and mix until it turns into a sort of orange-y colour.
- Sprinkle some salt and pepper, along with the chilli flakes, cayenne pepper and basil leaves. Mix.
- Add in the cooked pasta and the ½ cup of pasta water. Your pasta water shouldn’t be going down the drain when you can use it for your pasta sauces, it adds a nice touch and flavor for your pasta.
- Pour in the parmesan cheese and last but not least, the butter. Then, continue to mix them altogether. You can top it off with some sprinkles of basil leaves and more parmesan if you like it cheesy.
- Now, time to enjoy a quiet night in or a dinner with the fam with this gorgeous, delicious-looking pasta. It’s heaven.
