The other day I made lasagna for the first time and it turned out to be super good, even my mum loved it surprisingly (she’s absolutely not fan of foods other than the one she normally cooks – Mauritian/Chinese or Indian food). Also every single time I try an Italian dish, it is a success on first trial. I wonder if I was Italian in my previous birth (haha).
I’ll be sharing with you an easy pasta dish.
Pasta in tomato sauce with mushrooms
Again, this is a quick dinner option, very easy to prepare and delicious.
- Pasta (Nouilles fine by Panzani)
- 2 whole tomato (from can)
- 3 tbsp tomato sauce
- 1 chili (optional)
- Spring Onion
- 2 tbsp oil
- A handful of mushroom (half can)
- 1 small onion
- 1 tsp garlic and ginger paste
- Salt to taste
- Cheese (optional)
- In a recipient, boil some water with ½ tbsp of oil and a little bit of salt
- Add the pasta and let it cook till it becomes soft and drain
- On medium heat, add 1½ tbsp of oil to a saucepan (big enough to put in the pasta)
- Add in onion and garlic and ginger paste.
- When the onion turns light brown, add the whole tomato, tomato sauce and salt to taste
- Let it simmer for a while till the tomato is cooked and then add chopped mushroom, chili and thyme leaves
- Allow the mushroom to cook for around 3 mins
- Bring the drained pasta to the saucepan, mix well and let it cook for 5 more mins
- Lastly garnish with coriander and spring onion and a good layer of your favorite cheese(optional)
Adding some saute broccoli to it to make it healthier.
Broccoli and mushroom are super-foods!
Some of the health benefits of mushroom include boosting the immune system, help to strengthen the bone and teeth, a good eating option for people with diabetes and a good source of iron (helpful to those suffering from anemia) while broccoli helps to fight cancer, supply the body with a number of vitamins, detoxify the body, improves the skin and strengthen the immune system (to name a few).
Bon appetit 🙂
