Pasta With Tomato Sauce



                                                                       
This is one of my favourite Italian dish. Since the 1st time I had this, I have become a fan of it. Not only it is delicious in taste but it has a certain vibrancy with it. Especially when the tomato sauce is mixed with the pasta, it turns out to be an inviting food. Yesterday, I prepared it for my family and was not sure how my son would like this (till now in my  knowledge he like pasta with cheese only) but he surprised me !!! I had prepared chapatis for him, which he kept aside and went on asking for more pasta till his hunger was satisfied every one including my 4 year old son asked for more. 
                                                                   


Ingredients:
1 tbsp Olive oil
3-4 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 Onion, finely chopped
500gms Tomatoes, peeled and chopped
2 tbsp Tomato puree
Fresh basil, handful
2 tbsp Parsley, chopped
1 tbsp Oregano
1 tsp Paprika
Salt and Black pepper powder according to taste


Method:
Heat Olive oil in a thick saucepan and to bring out the fragrance, add minced garlic. Stir this for few seconds, while not letting the garlic burn.
                                                  
 Immediately add onion and saute until transparent. Add tomato puree and keep stirring for 2-3 minutes. On low heat add rest of the chopped tomatoes, paprika, salt, pepper, chopped basil leaves and parsley. Keep on stirring at regular intervals and cook until the sauce thickens. Before switching off the burner add oregano, stir well. Voila ! your tomato pasta sauce is ready. If you want to store this for later use, pour this in an air tight container and keep inside the fridge for 4-5 days. 

                                              


Pasta with this tomato sauce:
Ingredients:
1 packet of pasta(Farfalle)
1 tbsp Olive oil
2-3 Garlic, crushed
3 tbsp Ricotta cheese
Salt according to taste


Method:
Cook pasta according to the package directions at the back of packet. Drain the pasta thoroughly (it's better to save few tbsp of pasta water for later use, if you find the final outcome a little dry adding this water might help you). Saute garlic in olive oil in a pan, throw in the cooked pasta and stir. Pour the tomato sauce over the pasta and toss together. Add salt and cheese, blend well. Pasta with tomato sauce is ready to be served.
