Simple tomato sauce pasta-Pasta in salsa di pomodoro
Pasta is an Italian recipe.This is a classic one pot meal recipe loved world-wide.I am not expert in pasta recipes but i am learning and iimproving myself day by day.
One of my fellow blogger friend +Puneet Jabbal  uploaded pasta recipe few days back and it reminds me my first ever experience with pasta.I have shared that on blog before,It was Roasted Onion and Tomato sauce pasta.

I want to make some Simple and evergreen recipe using pasta and decided to make pasta with simple tomato sauce because sometimes you only need simple food.
I didn't add onions here because i want only garlic flavor.This pasta recipe is made using fresh tomato puree.

The main cooking time here is time required to boil pasta . rest of the recipe will be prepared in 5-7 mins.I am using del-monte penne pasta here.
As i have told you,The main flavor of the recipe is Garlic seasoned with mix herbs,black pepper and chili flakes.This is very simple dish with very basic seasoning.

Last but not least If you follow the blog regularly then you might know that i have recently created my profile on instagram. It feels so exciting to share regular life with you all and make new friends.If you got time then do check my profile there.
