Pasta in Tomato and Garlic sauce


My friend Shuchita, mailed a recipe of Pasta arabiatta…..it sounded yummy…I tried it on a weekend…with a few changes to make it taste like the All in one pasta served in Cream Center.
The sauce
Ingredients (serves 2)
Penne pasta (about 300 gms- I used penne, you may use any type you like)
Fine puree of 4 to 5 tomatoes
Fine paste of 8 pods of garlic 1 tspn.
1 tspn. Mixed herbs
1 tspn.
Chilli flakes
Black pepper powder (for garnishing)
3 to 4 tbspn.
Tomato Ketchup
3 cubes of cheese (I used britania)
Salt to taste 1 ½ tspn.
sugar 1 tspn.
Olive oil ½ tspn.
Butter
Method
Cook the pasta till tender and soft, run cold water on it to avoid it from being sticky. Keep aside. Take oil in a pan, add butter, then add garlic paste, stir for half a minute, add sugar. We have to caramalise the garlic. After a minute, add tomato puree, mixed herbs, tomato ketchup, chopped cheese, salt to taste and mix well. Let it cook for a while till the cheese melts. Before you add cooked pasta, remove half a cup of your sauce aside. Then add pasta, mix well. Let it cook for a minute or so. After its blended well, switch off the flame. While serving, toss it up with the sauce you removed aside and some black pepper powder. Now drop it in you mouth and enjoy!! :) Shuchita’s recipe was more like the arabiatta pasta served at Pizza Hut….but I turned into this one…..:P Shichita sorry for the cheese I added to this pasta…I indulged ;)
