Pasta

Pasta is a part of the Italian Cuisine. It has become one of the world's favourite dish. I seems that there are more than 600 pasta shapes produced worldwide. The type of pasta I used here is called 'maccheroni'.We call it macaroni in India.








INGREDIENTS

Pasta – 360 gms
Onion – 1 ¼ cup (finely chopped)
Capsicum - half medium (finely chopped)
Sweet Corn - a cup (I used baby corn)
Tomato - 1 medium sized
Garlic cloves - 2 cloves (finely chopped)
Green Chili - 1 (finely chopped)(I slit it into half as I was making it for kids)
Coriander - 2 tablespoons (finely chopped)
Mozzarella Cheese - for garnish
Processed Cheese - 1 cube
cooking oil - 2-3 teaspoons
Salt - to taste
Oregano - for garnish
Chili Flakes - for garnish(I did not use these)
Pizza Sauce - 3 tablespoons. (used 2 tbsp chilli sauce)
Tomato Ketchup - 1 tbsp



METHOD
Boil the pasta with salt in hot water till cooked. Stir well so that it does not get stuck to the bottom.
Drain the water and pour cold water on it.
In a pan heat oil.  Add the garlic and green chilli.
Sauté the onions with salt (for around 2 minutes).
Add the pizza sauce and tomato sauce.
Add the capsicum, baby corn and sauté for 2 minutes.
Add tomatoes and stir (10 seconds).
Add the pasta and mix well.
Garnish with coriander leaves, cheese and oregano.


 Tips:
Do not saute the tomatoes for long as it will become soggy.
I added one Maggi Chicken Stock Cube.
Add more chillies as per spice level required.
I used tinned baby corn.
