Gochujang Pasta Without Cream

Gochujang Pasta brings together the best of Korean and Italian flavors for a unique and tasty meal.

For those who prefer a lighter option without cream, this recipe is a great choice. It offers a delicious and spicy twist on traditional pasta dishes.

The star of the dish is gochujang, a Korean fermented chili paste. It adds a spicy and savory kick.

What sets gochujang apart is its versatility. It pairs well with rice, pasta, and pretty much anything else. It’s one of my go-to ingredients for flavoring my dishes.

Without the cream, this dish stays light and refreshing while still packing a punch with the heat from the gochujang paste.

This Gochujang Pasta has become one of my go-to fusion recipes at home, and I think you’ll love it too.
