Spaghetti in tomato sauce

This is the first time i tried spaghetti with tomato sauce.I got a tomato sauce from walmart.It didn't have salt or anything in it.It tasted jus like a tomato puree.So i tried to use it in spaghetti.This is how i made it

Spaghetti 1 box
Hot water 1 ltr
tomato sauce 1 small tin
chilli powder 1 tsp

salt to taste
oil 2 tsp

onion 1
carrot cut into thin slices 1/4cup
peas 1/4cup

coriander leaves few
In a wide mouth vessel boil water.When water starts to boil add little salt & spaghetti to it.Add a tsp oil to this to avoid spaghetti from becoming sticky. Allow spaghetti to cook to required tenderness.Drain water & run cold water on cooked spaghetti & set aside.In a kadai add oil & then onions to it.Saute for a while.

Now add carrots & peas to it.Add Tomato sauce to it.Now add chilli powder & salt to it.Allow the sauce to cook for a while.When it starts add the cooked spaghetti & mix well.Garnish with coriander leaves.

This was more like how we prepare tomato sevai in India.So i called it Indian spaghetti.sounded gud to me how abt u?

  6. Dolmio pasta bake sauce is ideal. Ofcourse they are all low in salt, so we can add a pinch or two as required. It has little bits of onions and a good flavour too. I like reading your recipes and i have made a few. I am amazed by the culinary talents in these blogs. I can only say wow.
