TOMATO PENNE PASTA




An Italian delicacy, with a little twist of Indian flavor gives you the taste as well as pleasure of having homemade pasta within a matter of few minutes. The sauce can be made according to one’s taste and liking of vegetables. There is no need to bake this recipe. To make this we need to do two things. First-> Boil Penne or whatever shape you like. Second is to make its sauce. I am here using simple and famous tomato sauce with some vegetables.  

INGREDIENTS

Penne ½ lb                                     Tomato Paste 4-5 tsp
Italian Herbs 2 tsp                         Tomato (Med Size) 2 Pieces
Onion (Med Size) ½ cup               Salt to taste
Parmesan Cheese 3-4 tsp         Oil 1 tsp
Mix Vegetables (Carrot, Corn, Beans, Brocolli)  ¼ cup

Preparation
Finely cut the mix vegetables, Onion and Tomato.

METHOD

Boil Penne in water till ‘al dente’ or according to the instructions on the packet.

SAUCE

Take a pan, add 1 tsp oil. Let it heat and add 1 tsp Italian herbs to it. It will give a nice aroma. Fry Onion till golden brown. Add Mix vegetables and fry them for 3-4 minutes. Add Tomatoes and cover the pan for another 2-3 minutes. Mix all the vegetables and add tomato paste to it. Add salt to it. Cover the lid and let it cook for 3-4 minutes. Add 1 tsp Italian herbs to it.

In a serving plate, add boiled penne, toss the sauce on top of it and sprinkle parmesan cheese. You can also garnish it with spring onions.

This was very good and my family enjoyed it. I thought it was a little too cheesy, pan and plates were hard to clean afterward. Maybe I'll try adding more tomatoes and basil next time so it's not so sticky. I will definitely make it again!

When I lived alone i wasn't a good cook and enjoyed eating pasta. For a bit of flavour I'd put nothing but tomato sauce on my pasta which was usually penne pasta. My girlfriend thinks it's disgusting when I tell her this.

Jean said...

Well, i just want to say that i really like your recipe, and must try this at home, thanx for the wonderful post, looking forward.

Really easy to make, I usually keep most of these ingredients in my house already so this side dish had been added to our regular rotation. The only thing I did different was used wheat penne instead of regular penne. Goes great with breaded chicken cutlets (or adding leftover chicken cutlets cut into small pieces)

Jennifer said...

It was indeed cheesy though I had taken the advise of several other cooks and cut the pepper jack cheese. My kids still loved it.
