Penne with shrimps, zucchini and cabbage


Hi there,

First of all congratulations for all people that got new cord at yesterday’s batizado of Capoeira Luanda, the Netherlands. Thanks to all teachers and students for great input. After intensive days of trainings, workshops, great party and then batizado everyone got exhausted. Some people decided for French fries, pizzas, croquet’s etc. Well, I decided for something else. Firstly, my limit of unhealthy food was exceeded on Saturday eating rich in proteins and fat fast-food, i.e. chicken-corn-stick (I must say it was great) and croquet; not mentioning white “puffed” bread-rolls with “alla McDonald’s plastic cheese”. Secondly, I already had in mind some quick, tasty and easy solution for my dinner.

This time on my dish was: penne with shrimps, zucchini and cabbage

Ingredients (for 1 person):

–          100g penne

–          ½ zucchini

–          Shrimps, around 20 pieces (I have no idea how much does it weight)

–          Garlic, 2 cloves

–          1/3 small spitskool (my dictionary says it is Chinese cabbage- but that’s not true. See attached picture, if someone knows how it’s called, let me know please).

–          1 tbsp. parmesan cheese

–          Oil to fry


  1. Boil penne
  2. Fry shrimps with zucchini cubes and garlic (people say it is better to fry garlic at the end of the frying process but if your veggies are having some water drops- garlic will not burn; the idea was to make it quick- that means put all ingredients together)
  3.  Cut cabbage into 0,5cm slices. Do not process it. You will use it as “decoration” and crispy bonus. (Of course, the dish will be still delicious if you don’t use cabbage. It is just an optional ingredient).
  4. Top with parmesan cheese

Simple, tasty and quick.

*Enjoy your meal*
