Tomato Pasta – Cheesy Tomato Pasta

February 2, 2017 Bachelor Friendly RecipesBreakfast/DinnerKids BayPasta / Pizza Recipes  6 comments

I am a big fan of pasta & especially this Cheesy Tomato Pasta. There are many shapes of Pasta. I have tried many shapes and this Farfalle is my favourite. I usually make Tomato Pasta with homemade pasta sauce, but when not available I use tomato sauce and spice it up with seasoning just like I have done in the video. I should say this pasta tastes much better than the ones that we get in restaurants & pizza outlets. Especially here, it tastes totally bland. I had posted this recipe long back, now updated with new pics and video 🙂

Here is the video…..

 

 

Now to the recipe…

Tips:

  1. I have used vegetable stock cubes. If you are a non vegetarian u can use the non veg options.
  2. If you do not have stock cubes, cook pasta along with some salt.
  3. U can use any veggie of your choice like sweet corn, olives…
  4. Do not overcook the veggies. Crunchy capsicum & baby corns are the highlights of this Cheesy Tomato Pasta recipe.
  5. Sometimes when I dont have homemade pasta sauce, I use tomato sauce + dried herbs/oregano.
