Curried Chicken Farfalle Pasta Recipe by Spicie Foodie

Have you ever met anyone who didn’t like pasta? I haven’t. In fact it seems like everyone really loves it. The evidence is all around my neighborhood with it’s 5 Italian restaurants all within walking distance of each other. That’s crazy but at the same time a good thing as each has a specialty that I like and can only get there.

Though originally from Italy, pasta has become an international staple. The varieties are vast as are the ingredients used both to make and cook with it. One of the great things about it is that how quick and easy it is to prepare. Let’s not forget to mention that it can also become luxuries enough for any occasion. We can easily adjust to fit our personal tastes. It appears that in every country where pasta is found local ingredients and flavors are incorporated to make it their own.

Curried Chicken Farfalle Pasta Recipe by Spicie Foodie

This recipe is a fusion of creamy western style Farfalle pasta and Indian curry spice. Start with a small amount of curry powder then gradually adjust to your personal taste. We love it because it is creamy and a tad spicy, plus a completely different way of eating pasta.

Great looking pasta dish! Farfalle is one of my favorite shapes – so many lovely edges. I like curry and I like chicken and often combine them. But I don’t think I’ve ever made a curried pasta. I can’t imagine why not – what a great idea! Good stuff – thanks.

Oh, my son would love you… his two favourites combined into one gorgeous dish: curried chicken + pasta! (I better hide it from him – heehee – or wait until I have the ingredients on hand ;0).

I really don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t like pasta (well, except my older brother, but he’s a freak). I’m also a huge curry fan, so fusing those two foods together is genius. It looks delicious.

Nancy, what a brilliant idea! I am a pasta lover too but I have been cutting back a bit on my carb intake :( I have never tried curry with pasta and I think it is an absolutely delicious combination.

Oh pasta and curry! I love pasta and I love curries, I never thought to mix the two together but it sounds right. Plain boiled pasta needs a condiment to be good and curries are spicy and have an intense flavour!! Inspiring fusion dish. (Good luck with Amazon deals! It is difficult to support the blog online…I’m starting supper clubs…fingers cross!)

Such delicious flavor pairings in this fusion dish! I love Indian flavors (and pasta!) so I know this one would be a big hit in my house.

I am going to be making a pretty big Amazon order within the next week – I will make sure to use the links here! It’s the least I can do to help support such a talented blogger friend!

Really what’s not to like about pasta and Indian flavors? I’m a huge fan of both.

I certainly haven’t met anyone, lol. I haven’t got to the point of shopping yet, just glad to be catching up on some reading. I wish I could wave my magic wand and get all the shopping done, it really is my least favorite part of the holidays. Good idea with the Amazon links though. Hope all is well with you, miss stopping by here and I’m loving all the new snaps.

Hey Gina! I don’t think I want to meet someone who doesn’t. Lol! While I do enjoy giving gifts it is the crowds and chaos this time of year that I don’t care for. I miss you too but I know you’ve had so much going on. Will catch up with you later today.

I love pasta but I have to say my husband is not so into pasta (he could be the only one in the world!). I’ve never tried making pasta dish with curry, and I love curry… This must be changed! Farfalle is my kids’ favorite kind of pasta too. Looks perfect!

I stumbled upon this recipe tonight when I had a craving for curry, but no coconut milk. This was delicious! I added some crushed red pepper to spice it up. As a fellow expat, I LOVE you blog. So many recipes contain a bunch of American processed food that you can’t buy anywhere else. Thank you for not including cream of mushroom soup (at least I haven’t seen it…) in any of your recipes! I can’t wait to try something else!

66 Spicie Foodie April 21, 2014 at 9:13 PM

Thank you Stacy! Don’t worry you will never see a can of cream of mushroom here. Lol!:) I don’t use processed foods in my cooking — try to keep it as clean and healthy. Enjoy!
