Ingredients

Number of serving: 2
21/2 cups of boiled pasta

2 onions chopped

4 tomatoes chopped

2 large garlic cloves  chopped

1 green or any colored capsicum chopped

3-4 mushrooms washed and sliced

1/2 carrot peeled and grated

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2-3 teaspoon chopped celery

a large pinch of ajwain or carom seeds or oregano

salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon sugar

3-4 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

parsley to garnish

Preparation

  • Take a large pan and take enough and more water to boil the pasta. One should remember that Pasta almost doubles in volume after cooking. Add 2 tsp oil and some salt to the water
  • When the water starts boiling add about 11/2 cups of pasta and cook Al Dente. It means it is tender but with firm resistance to the bite.
  • Once cooked remove in a colander and pour cold water on it and keep aside. This prevents the Pasta from sticking each other.
  • Heat olive oil in a pan and add chopped garlic. When it turns brown add the onions and cook till translucent. Now add chopped celery, carom seeds carrot, tomatoes, salt and sugar. Cook till tomatoes are done and has a saucy texture.
  • Now add the pasta, capsicum, pepper pwd and toss it in the sauce properly for 2-3 mins max. Do not overcook, else you loose all natural flavors and the sauce turns too thick.
  • It should coat the pasta properly (ideally the pasta should be dipped in hot water before adding to the sauce).
  • Serve it hot with some parsley and grated cheese.
