Scrumptious Pasta : My recipe

A very simple yet delightful recipe  :)
Yummy Pasta 
We can have a lot of variations here  and add our favorite herbs and other toppings. 
This is a basic recipe, My favorite.
Ingredients
Fusilli Pasta – 2 cup ( you can take any)
Tomatoes -  5
Onions 2
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

Method
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.
Serve hot.
Enjoy :)
