Spicy Pasta

This is a recipe where you can experiment a lot, you can add more or reduce the sauces and spices...everything as per how your taste buds demand. The recipe I have mentioned below is not any authentic Pasta recipe, its just an experimental one according to what I liked. I have used Whole Wheat Elbows for this, which is high in fiber. You can use any type of pasta for this. You can try and customize this and I am sure you will love it.


Whole Wheat Elbows - 1.5 cup
Onions - 1/2 cup (cut into long strips)
Veggies of your choice - 1/2 cup (cut into long strips) I used only Bell Peppers.
Tomatoes - 1/2 cup
Italian Seasoning - 1 tsp
Tomato Chilli Sauce - 2 tbsp
Soya sauce - 2 tbsp
Pizza Sauce - 2 tbsp (optional)
Garlic powder - 1/2 tsp (or use fresh Garlic finely chopped)
Oil - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1 tsp or to taste
Chilli flakes - 1 tsp or to taste
Cheese - 1/4 cup (optional)
Salt - to taste

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Strain and keep aside.
Heat oil in a large wok or in a large pan. Rub the Italian seasoning within your palms and add to the oil.
Add the onions and saute for a while. Add the Bell Peppers now.Increase the heat and cook the veggies by stirring constantly so that they will get cooked and remain crisp as well.
Once cooked, decrease the flame to medium. Add the chilli flakes, garlic powder, pepper powder and salt. Mix everything well.Now add  tomatoes and cook for about 2 minutes.
Add the cooked pasta now. Add all the sauces.Mix thoroughly.
Check for the salt, sauces and spices now. Add more if you like.
Now the spicy pasta is ready.
Before serving, add a little cheese over the pasta, microwave for a few seconds so as to melt the cheese.

Serves 2-3

*You can increase or decrease any spices and sauces as you like.
*Cheese is optional. If health conscious, you can add fat free cheese if you like.
