Jollof Spaghetti…

how to cook jollof recipe

Hello lovies, hope you all had a good week? Here is a quick recipe for the weekend. If you are a lover of pasta and spaghetti, then this jollof spaghetti is for you. You can even prepare your indomie noodles with this super easy recipe too.

My friend (Imimi) always make jollof spaghetti while we were in school, she would cook her spaghetti jollof with tomato puree and chilli and I tell you it was the bomb. It was also a new experience eating it each time. She doesn’t add curry and thyme because she doesn’t like them. As students now, meat was always a privilege so we always ended up accompanying our spaghetti jollof with boiled eggs. My oh my, those two combination can’t be described, just out of this world.

I made my jollof spaghetti using left over buka stew (recipe coming in the week) and I jazzed it up with fresh prawn, and uziza leaves. Man I loved it! Let me know if you try this recipe and kindly share the picture too by tagging my active kitchen on facebook or instagram.
