Fusilli Pasta in Tomato Sauce | Easy Pasta Recipes

Pasta comes in our menu once in a while to get rid of the boredom of the usual breakfast routine. Last time I got fusilli pasta and tried a simple tomato sauce with it. I've already tried penne tomato pasta but this time its a variation with ingredients and with no pasta sauce as last time I had few readers asking for substitute for pasta sauce.

My Notes:
  • You can also add a hint of mint leaves paste to it to give a nice flavour.
  • Adding onions also gives a nice crunchiness and taste.

  3. Love pasta ... looks yummy.

    For the vadai, soaking in hot water is to make it soft. Some people add the vadais directly to yogurt too.
