PASTA form the staple diet in many countries all over the world although we think of rice to be mainly used in savory dishes on special occasion, the old fashioned way. We have the famous rice with fried chicken and sweet and sour pork served with plain boiled rice are also worth trying.

There are many kinds of pasta in all sorts of enchanting shapes and in most grocery stores. A choice can be found such as penne, spaghetti, macaroni, tagliatelle, shells and bows and so on, the list is endless’.

There are also different types of sauces to go with pasta and in the list we have the cheese flavored, pesto as well as plain, sweet or herbed tomato sauces.

Today in the kitchen we have a very simple and straight forward recipe as long as you follow it step by step, put some love to it, you will never go wrong. I tell you and the results are going to be simply amazing.


11/2 cup cooked pasta
1 cup button mushrooms
Chicken and mushroom prego sauce
1 cup chicken chunks / strips
Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

In a saucepan, pour some drops of olive oil and fry the chicken strips/chunks until browned. Remove them from the pan and set aside.

Fry the onions and mushrooms until cooked, add back the fried chicken strips/chunks, cooked pasta and add the classic chicken and mushroom prego pasta sauce.

Using a pasta spoon gently mix and simmer for 3 minutes.Serve and garnish with spring onions or chives.

To keep pasta hot if there are let comers, the hot toast savoury butter can be put in a large saucepan with the pasta when cooked for up to 30 minutes allowing the butter to melt slowly

For a delicious alternative, use chunky stewed steak instead of minced beef and either plain or green lasagne.For preparation prior to a party, the cooked noodles can be kept moist for a few hours in a large polythene bag.

Keep inspired and enjoy more and more recipes and tips from our kitchen.

Local singer Katlego Ntsieng left the audience spellbound at the Multichoice Talent Factory (MTF) in Lusaka, Zambia recently.

The soft-spoken singer dressed simply in a black suit, with her dreadlocks held in an up-do. When she belted out in tune, everyone fell silent, stunned by the magnificence of her voice.

She performed a love song with English and Setswana lyrics, about a lost lover who thinks they have found a better love only to want to retrace their steps.

When she left the stage, she received a standing ovation. This raw gem visibly impressed minister of Youth Empowerment, Sport and Culture Development, Thapelo Olopeng, who was part of the invited delegation.

It is true that dynamites come in small packages because although she is petite with an unassuming presence, Katlego has a bold and powerful voice. The MTF programme is aimed at unleashing raw talent on the continent and to contribute to the growth of the creative industry across Africa.

The first intake for the programme will include two individuals from each country across southern Africa.
