Easy Cheesy Pasta





Ingredients:

2 tomatoes, chopped finely
2 onions, chopped finely
3 to 5 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
Capsicum (green, yellow and red) – 1 cup, finely chopped
Pizza/Pasta Sauce – 3 tbsps
Pasta – 2 cups uncooked
Olive oil – 2 tsp
Cheese grated – ¼ cup
Italian pasta seasoning or mixed herbs - a generous pinch

Method:

Boil 5-6 cups of water with a teaspoon of oil and salt.




Add Pasta and once it is cooked drain out the water and keep the pasta aside. I used whole wheat pasta.




Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan. Add onion, garlic and cook till light brown.




Add capsicum and salt. Cook for 5- 10 minutes.  Add pizza/pasta sauce, tomatoes and simmer for      2 -3 minutes. Add little water if required.



Add cooked pasta. Switch off gas and add grated cheese.


Note :

1.You may omit the cheese if you are on a diet and the pasta will still taste good.
2. Add tomatoes towards the end. The tomatoes should be juicy. Use hybrid tomatoes.
