Pasta Italiano By Kid #2


We are a family of foodies who love to experiment with aromas, tastes and the colorful ingredients. Kid #2 is a budding chef  and at the age of 15  he dishes out some amazing stuff now and then. Cooking together is always fun and therapeutic too. It is amazing to see kids churning out new stuff . I love it  when boys can manage such wonderful cooking. 😀  I know he won’t starve when alone. By the way he makes the usual regular  dishes also. 🙂

I think it is good to share what your children specialize in , just to give them a boost.

It is  passion with us when it comes to cooking, baking etc.

So here is a Sunday special for all of you .

Pasta Italiano

we can have a lot of variations here  and add our favorite herbs and other toppings. This is a basic recipe. My favorite.

Ingredients

Fusilli Pasta – 2 cup ( you can take any)

Tomatoes –  5

Onions 2

Garlic -2 pods (Big) ( I prefer more)

Tomato Ketchup – 5-6 table-spoon

Dash of Asafoetida

Red chilli – 1/2 tea-spoon

Salt – to taste

Coriander , Theme, parsley, basil or any other herb- 2 table spoon ( chopped)

Green chili- 1 ( de seeded and  slit into two)

Olive oil – 2 table spoon

Method

Heat water with a few drops of oil and a little salt . Add pasta and cook till soft. Remove from heat and drain in a colander. Keep in under cold water for a while so the pasta doesn’t stick .

Keep aside and keep a heavy bottom pan on heat.

Add olive oil and fry  the finely chopped onions, garlic and green chili till golden brown . Add finely chopped tomatoes . Sprinkle asafoetida.

Let it simmer till a nice red sauce is made. Add salt and ketchup .

Simmer for some more time to make a gorgeous sauce.

Add cooked pasta to the sauce and keep it covered on slow heat .

Stir in  fresh chopped herbs like thyme, coriander, basil, parsley  etc

Remove from heat.

Garnish with herb of your choice.

Serve hot.

We really freaked out on this one. He presented it well and the dish was a screamer all the way.

Cheers!!
