Century Corned Tuna's Bloggers Cook-off

this is what i've really missed: cooking with a bunch of friends. and this has taken to a higher level as we have been invited by Century Corned Tuna to a bloggers cook-off challenge. we were divided into two groups and i joined jane, arpee, ajay, aj, and erlyn.

our task is to make courses as many as we want provided with the following ingredients:

the task should be done under a limited time and will be judged thru the following criteria: Plating (20%), Originality (20%), Taste (25%) and the Innovative Use of Century Corned Tuna (35%). we made a couple of recipes which captured the tastebuds of the judges and other guests. we made quesadillas and a pasta dish.

i would like to share to you our pasta dish recipe as told by aj named Century Corned Tuna Pasta with Asparagus, Spinach and Miso topped with Almonds:

  • Olive Oil
  • Soy Sauce
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Paprika
  • Onion stalks
  • Almonds
  • Century Corned Tuna (Chili Flavor)
  • Miso
  • White wine
  • Spinach
  • Asparagus
  • Pasta (Fettucine)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cook pasta until al dente. Set aside.
  2. Toast almonds then slice into slivers. Set aside.
  3. In a pan with olive oil, sauté garlic, onions, onion stalks and asparagus.
  4. Add in Century Corned Tuna Chili.
  5. Add a pinch of Paprika.
  6. Add in soy sauce, white wine and miso.
  7. Add in spinach.
  8. Continue sauteing for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  9. Add in the pasta to the pan and toss until all the ingredients are mixed well.
  10. Put the pasta on a plate and top with almonds.
fortunately, we won the said cok-off. but the food they prepared are equally as healthy and yummy because of Century Corned Tuna.
