Pasta being a staple food of the traditional Italian cuisine, does not make it any less desired in any of the other countries. In fact, pasta is something that is enjoyed in all shapes and sizes, by people of all age groups, worldwide.
My all time favorite is the Spicy Sausage Pasta. This Italian dish seems like it has been created with the Indian taste-buds in mind. Since this is the first meal I learned to cook, I decided to make my first blog post all about it.
Pasta – 1 cup
Olive Oil – 4 tbsp
Onion – 1 (chopped)
Sausages – 4 (chopped)
Tomato Paste – 10 tbsp (135 gm)
Garlic paste – 1 tsp
Chilli powder – 3 tsp
Salt – according to taste
Mint & Coriander leaves – 1-2 handful (finely chopped)
Step 1: Boil the pasta as per packet instructions. Remove from flame once cooked, and strain immediately. Pour some cold water over this pasta while straining, to prevent over-cooking.
Step 2: In a non-stick pan, heat some oil. After a minute or so, add the onions and saute it until translucent.
Step 3: Add chopped sausages into the pan and let it cook partially.
Step 4: Once the sausages are half-done, add-in the tomato paste, garlic paste, and chilli powder. Add salt according to taste. Leave it all to cook for another 2 minutes.
Step 5: Add in the cooked pasta, and mix it all up. Turn off the flame.Toss in some mint and coriander leaves, and serve hot.
