Spicy Tomato Pasta For T & C

Pasta is one of our favorites and when I was paired with Corina who blogs at Searching For spice;for this month's edition of Taste and Create, I searched for pasta recipes and found this one which was perfect for our taste buds.A simple , no-fuss dish that can be whipped up at short notice and comes in handy when there are no vegetable around.


I used:
Recipe source -Searching For Spice

Pasta - 1 cup
Tomato ,ripe - 2 large, chopped
Onion- 1, small,chopped
Garlic- 2,pods, chopped
Capsicum-1/2 small, chopped
Chilli - 1, chopped
Oil- 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Grated cheese to garnish


  1. Cook the pasta according to the directions on the pack. Drain and keep aside.
  2. Meanwhile,heat oil in a pan and saute onion, chilli, garlic till the onion is a trasnlucent.
  3. Add the capsicum and the tomato and cook till the tomato is mushy.
  4. Add 1/4 cup of water and bring to boil.
  5. Put in the cooked pasta and mix to coat and the water is absorbed.
  6. Serve hot garnished with grated cheese.



Note :


  • The spice level was just right for us. You can increase / decrease the number of chillies used. 
  • You can also use chilli powder instead of green chillies. Add it along with the tomato and cook till the raw smell goes off and then add water.
