Indian Style Masala Pasta Recipe

Tuesday, December 22, 2015
 Happy Holidays Everyone! With Christmas just 2 days away, are you guys all set with the holiday preparations? Sorry for a no show from my end for couple of weeks, i fell sick very badly and could hardly manage anything well on my own. I am bouncing back slowly and gradually!
Today i am sharing a super easy indian style masala pasta recipe for upcoming holidays. This ain't your ordinary pasta. With flavors bursting out from every corner, this one is delicious! To make it more unique and give a distinct flavor, i have used my ever favorite and trusted Ragú Pasta Sauce

Have you guys heard about Assunta Cantisano, the founder of Ragú? She was an immigrant from Italy, with an amazing entrepreneurial spirit. Assunta came to America during great depression as a single mom, with her trusted family recipe for Tomato Sauce.  With her hard work and dedication, Ragú pasta sauce was born. Made with farm grown ingredients, no artificial ingredients and no high fructose corn syrup, Ragú is the one to celebrate traditions. It is crafted with passion and simmered in tradition.

What are your holiday traditions guys? I would love to hear some from you all. Are there recipes passed down to you from your grand mom? Or the one from many generations? Share them all in comments below.

1/2 Onion chopped finely
4 garlic cloves minced
1 tsp ginger minced
2 tbsp peanut oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 green chilies chopped
Steamed or Boiled Mixed veggies - 1 cup

2 tbsp Ragu Pasta Sauce

1. Boil and drain pasta. Heat oil in a sauce pan, add cumin seeds, garlic, ginger, green chilies. Saute for a minute. Add onions, salt, turmeric powder ,chili powder and the steamed veggies. Saute for 3-4 minutes, till onion turns translucent.
