Red Sauce Onion Pasta

Pasta is generally made in red sauce or white sauce. My husband likes red sauce pasta more. Well, I have never tried white sauce pasta till date, however planning to try out soon 🙂 🙂

Pasta goes perfect as morning breakfast or evening recipe. Try out other snacks like crisp onion samosa, rawa dhokla, grilled chilli cheese sandwich, kothimbir vadi and matar kachori !!

The red sauce is made of red tomatoes with the flavor of garlic. This same sauce can be used in making pizza as base sauce.

  3. Heat oil in a pan. Add onion. Stir till transparent.
  4. Add pasta sauce. Then add pepper and little salt. Add the cooked pastas and sauté until the pasta sauce covers the cooked pasta really well. Sprinkle oregano flakes.

If desired you can add other vegetables such as capsicum and carrot for the more healthier version.
