This dish needs no introduction.As every one is familiar that pasta is an italian cuisine.For me it is an ultimate comfort food - b'coz you need just few minutes to cook & serve.So here is my version of pasta.

Pasta-->1 cup
Tomato-->1 big (chopped)
Tomato Ketchup-->1 tbsp
Green bell pepper-->handful (chopped)
Garlic Pods-->3
Italian seasoning-->1 tsp
Olive oil-->2 tbsp
Black Pepper Powder-->to taste
Salt-->to taste
Parmesan Cheese-->to garnish (grated)
Olives-->to garnish
1)Cook pasta as per instruction "al dente" in boiling water with salt & olive oil.

2)Heat 1 & 1/2 tbsp olive oil over medium heat.To this add chopped garlic.Fry them till the raw smell is gone.

3)Add tomatoes & allow them to cook.

4)Now once the tomatoes are cooked -add Green bell pepper & fry for few seconds.The pepper should be crunchy & not fully cooked.

5)Now add black pepper powder,salt,seasoning & give it a thorough mix.

6)Now toss in the cooked & drained pasta and add tomato ketchup.

7)Remove from stove top and serve the pasta garnished with grated cheese & olives.
  • "Al dente" means that has been cooked so as to be firm but not hard. To check whether pasta is cooked " Al dente" just try cutting the cooked pasta with a spoon & it should easily cut into two.
