Oriental Stir Fried Spaghetti with Bacon #15MinuteSupper 熏肉炒意面

It was a busy weekend for the family. We were spring cleaning in preparation for the lunar New Year which is only 2 weeks away and I nearly forgot it's lunchtime until I saw the clock pointing to 12:30.. Oops.

So I quickly searched my fridge for what to cook and found a packet of streaky bacon and some cooked spaghetti, left over from the previous dinner. So, stir fried spaghetti it is. The baby Choy Sum in our garden is ready for harvest so extra green for the pasta, how convenient. :)

It's a hush hush meal but yummy none the less. 

Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 10 min
Serving for: 3-4 pax


1/2 packet of spaghetti 
3 eggs, beaten and flavored with some salt & pepper
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped  
1 carrot, cut into short strips
1/4 onion, roughly chopped 
4 strips of streaky Bacon, cut into short strips
8 stalks of baby Choy Sum, washed and cleaned (since our homegrown baby Choy Sum
 is pesticide-free, I only gave it a brief wash)
1 teaspoon of salt
A few drops of Worcester sauce 
2 table spoon of soy sauce
1 teaspoon of dark soy sauce (optional, I added it for darker color which is more appetizing. Add more or omit as you wish)
A dash of pepper
A dash of paprika powder

The Making:

Stir Fried Spaghetti with Bacon, the oriental style

  1. In a pot of boiling water, cook the spaghetti for 10 minutes, add some salt in the water while boiling. Once cooked, drain the excess water and set the spaghetti aside.
  2. While the spaghetti is cooking, heat up a table spoon of olive oil and cook the egg omelet. Roughly cut it into small pieces using the spatula then set aside.
  3. Heat up a table spoon of olive oil on the wok and sauté the garlic till fragrance, toss in the onion and bacon strips, stir slightly then add the carrots slices. Add salt and Worcester sauce to taste.
  4. Add 1/2 cup of water, soy sauce and dark soy sauce, mix roughly then cover the wok and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Toss in the cooked pasta, follow by the  Choy Sam and eggs. Add another 1/2 cup of water, close the lid and let the pasta simmer for another 5 minutes.
  6. Turn off the stove, add a dash of pepper and paprika powder & mix well. Your pasta is ready to serve.
I love mine with few drops of freshly plugged lime (yeah, another product from our garden..), but that is really not necessary. It's just me and my exotic taste bud, Big Guy & the kiddos enjoy the spaghetti just like that.

Bon appetite!

  1. That looks really yummy! I love searching in my fridge and finding items I can put together and make a meal for my family with.

  2. I never would have thought to use pasta for a stir fry but why not? There are tons of noodle houses around here that are really popular!

  3. I love a good stir fry, especially since you can just throw whatever you have on hand (or in the garden).

  4. This looks delicious! I usually pair my stir fries with rice, but pasta is a great alternative!
