A very simple yet delightful recipe :)
We can have a lot of variations here and add our favorite herbs and other toppings.
This is a basic recipe, My favorite.
Fusilli Pasta – 2 cup ( you can take any)
Tomatoes - 5
Garlic -2 pods (Big) ( I prefer more)
Tomato Ketchup – 5-6 table-spoon
Dash of Asafoetida
Red Chili - 1/2 tea-spoon
Salt – to taste
Coriander , Theme, parsley, basil or any other herb- 2 table spoon ( chopped)
Green chili- 1 ( seeded and slit into halves)
Olive oil – 2 table spoon
Heat water with a few drops of oil and a little salt . Add pasta and cook till soft. Remove from heat and drain in a colander. Keep in under cold water for a while so the pasta doesn’t stick .
Keep aside and keep a heavy bottom pan on heat.
Add olive oil and fry the finely chopped onions, garlic and green chili till golden brown . Add finely chopped tomatoes . Sprinkle Asafoetida.
Let it simmer till a nice red sauce is made. Add salt and ketchup .
Simmer for some more time to make a gorgeous sauce.
Add cooked pasta to the sauce and keep it covered on slow heat .
Stir in fresh chopped herbs like thyme, coriander, basil, parsley etc
Remove from heat.
Garnish with herb of your choice.
