Chicken Shawarma Pasta Recipe

This chicken Shawarma recipe from the Middle East makes an excellent meal you’ll want to make again and again.

I made pasta noodles from scratch using the leftover chicken. I repeated the spices I used on the chicken to flavour my sauce. I added turmeric, cumin, and coriander to the sauce I developed. The flavours are rich and spicy.

For the last step, I added the vegetables from my refrigerator. I added spinach because I love adding spinach to my pasta dishes. Also, I added yellow tomatoes because of the colour contrast it would create. I thought that this recipe had very unique.
