Linguine

 


Pastas are such a popular dish these days. People are going so crazy about Italian dishes. Honestly speaking I have rarely enjoyed Pastas in the restaurants. Most of the time I find it very bland or very cheesy. I love to make my own version of Pasta's at home. My hubby loves to eat only Pastas & noodles made by me. I try to customise it to suit our taste buds. I make Pasta sauces in many different ways. This one is a tomato based sauce. This sauce can also be used for Pizzas. Its very easy to make & tastes very good. You can use any type of Pasta that you like. I have made this with Linguine. This is how I made it.


Serves: 4
Cooking time:30 mins

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 Packet of Linguine
  • one pot water
  • 3 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 onions chopped
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 tspn red Chili powder
  • 1/4 tspn coriander powder
  • 1/4 tspn cumin powder
  • 1 Knorr Chicken Cube or (Chicken stock)
  • 200 gms chicken breast cut into cubes
  • Handful of Mint leaves
  • 3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
Method:

  1. Boil a pot full of water & drop in 2 large tomatoes into it. Remove the tomatoes in 2 mins, remove skin & set aside to cool.
  2. Now in the same pot add in the Pasta & cook for about 15 mins or as directed in Pasta packet. Drain the water & keep the Pasta aside
  3. Chop the tomatoes into small pieces
  4. In a large Pan add olive oil, fry ginger, onions until translucent.
  5. Now add in the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, chili, cumin, coriander powder, chicken cubes , chicken pieces & cook this until fat separation.
  6. Add about 1/2 cup of hot water to the sauce & cook for another minute or 2
  7. Finally add in the Mint leaves, Linguine & Toss well. 
  8. Garnish the dish with cheese

Note:
  • Add the Pasta to the sauce just before serving or the sauce will dry off soon.
  • If you are boiling Pasta ahead of time than add in some olive oil to the pasta so that it doesn't stick to each other.
