How to stir fry pasta

Recipe for stir fried pasta:

What you need:
1 pip garlic, crushed or finely chopped
1 egg
500g pasta, shown above is conchiglie pasta (Shells)
Powdered Chicken stock (optional)
Dark soya sauce
Salt & Pepper

1. Pre-boil water in a pot, add 2tbsp of salt *optional.
2. When water is boiling, pour in pasta and stir the bottom every 1-2 minutes, to ensure pasta does not stick on the bottom of the pot.
3. Boil about 10-15minutes and check the package for suggested cooking time.
4. Take 1 piece of the pasta and bite through it to check if it is ready. When it is chewy but firm in the centre, it is ready. If it is hard to bite and if you see white in the centre of the pasta, that means you have to cook it a little longer.
5. Empty the pasta pot into a strainer. Shake out excess water.
6. Heat your wok with oil (any cooking oil will do), when oil is hot, put in chopped/crushed garlic, quickly stir as garlic gets burned fast. Stir for 10 -15seconds, add in egg and stir again. Once the eggs are halfway cooked, add in pasta and seasoning (dark soya sauce,chicken stock, salt& pepper). Add a bit of water if you wish to. Serve hot.
