Pasta Al Adobo

Jan 21

I once attended a cooking demonstration of Chef Patron Gen Capati, from the famous Cookbook Kitchen (CBK). He cooked some of his restaurant’s most popular dishes like CBK Stuffed Spring Chicken brimming with cheese, ham and basil; Boston Poached Fish is fish fillet poached in white wine and grapes along with crowd favorites Meaty Herbed Eggplant, Pasta al Adobo and Decadent Chocolate Rhum Cake, a creation of Chef Capati himself. I will share these recipes in other blog articles but for now , it is Pasta al Adobo.

The Pasta al Adobo has a story. While abroad, he was asked about the Philippines most popular dish. Of course he said adobo. When he came back , he innovated this pasta recipe. You can use your leftover adobo or cook it.


2 tbsps. Olive oil

1 1/2 cups tomatoes, chopped

4 tbsp soy sauce

4 tbsp water

200 grams cooked pork adobo, shredded (leftover adobo and Adobo recipe)
