Tangy Tom' Pasta


Tomato puree-1 cup
Butter -1tbspn
Extra virgin olive oil - 1tbspn
Parmesan Cheese - 1tspn
Garlic- 5pods
Onion- 1 medium size, diced
Chilli flakes
Dried Oregano and Herbs

To make tomato puree:

1) Blanch (immerse the tomatoes in boiling water until it becomes soft) 2 tomatoes and peel of the skin. scoop of the seeds inside and cut the flesh into small bits. 
2) Grind the tomatoes, Dried Oregano and herbs (readily available in supermarkets) garlic and olive oil into a smoot paste.
3) This Paste can be store for a week under refrigeration and can be used in making pasta, noodle or even as bread spread.

How to make Pasta:

1) You may buy the different shapes of pastas available in the market. Each one is known by a different name by its shaps, For eg, Sphagetti ( flat noodle shape), Fusilli ( Spiral or twisted shape) Penne (Tubes with ridges) Shells and Pipes etc.,
      I have made this dish with Fusili.

2) Boil water and add little salt and oil.Then add this fusili and allow it to cook till it becomes soft.
3) Strain the water and immediately wash with cold water. This will avoid the fusilis without breaking.
4) In a wok, add butter and saute the onions and some garlic.
5) Add fusilis and toss it well, then to it add the tomato puree, salt and chilli flakes.
6) Toss it well and slow cook for 5mins and garnish with parmesan cheese.
