Macghetti Stir-Fry, with Love and Veggies

Do you want a quick and healthy meal? Do you have leftover stew? Do you have veggies? Do you have Pasta at home? If all your answers to these questions are YES, please get in here and
enjoy this very simple and quick pasta recipe.
PS: 'Macghetti' is a combo meal. Macghetti = Macaroni + Spaghetti


  • 2 Garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • Leftover chicken stew or Tomatoes-cayenne pepper paste
  • Boneless chicken, (cut into bite sizes)
  • Chicken franks/sausages (optional)
  • Carrots, diced
  • Spaghetti
  • Macaroni


  • Parboil Spaghetti and Macaroni (quantity of choice) for just 8 minutes, seive, and set aside
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of oil and saute the garlic and onions for about a minute
  • Rinse and glaze boneless chicken in spices of choice (I used basil and knorr chicken), then stir-fry in the hot onion for about 3 minutes or until its slightly cooked

  • Now, stir in the leftover stew and fry for about another 3 minutes. (So if you're using tomato-cayenne paste, simply fry just the way you would, for jollof rice sauce)

  • Add seasoning cubes and adjust taste, knowing fully well that leftover stew was seasoned previously
  • Now add the parboiled pasta, stir properly and allow to steam for a minute or two
  • Add in veggies  (carrots, peas, e.t.c) and sausages, stir all together and allow to steam until the pasta is soft enough for you.

  • Garnish and Serve...
