Tomato Pasta

A quick delcious meal for the lazy bums like me....

Ingredients:

Whole wheat Penne Pasta (you can use the regular one)
1 tsp Olive Oil
Crushed Garlic
Red Chilly Flakes
Oregano (or any Italian seasoning)
4 Ripe Vine Tomatoes - chopped
Broccoli florets (optional)
Salt to taste

Boil lots of water in a large pan. Toss in your pasta. Let it cook for 10-12 mins. It should be cooked al dente (half cooked). Drizzle some olive oil over the pasta and keep aside.
Now for the sauce. Heat Olive oil in a pan. Put in the garlic, saute for some time and add the red chilly falkes. If you have broccoli, then add it at this stage.
Put the tomatoes and let them cook till it makes a saucy texture. Sprinkle lots of Oregano and salt to taste.
Add the pasta to the sauce and your yummy tomato pasta is ready!!! Serve it with a stir-fry.
You may add cheddar cheese, I have skipped it to make a low-cal pasta.

Lazy pastas like this are sometimes better than meals that take hours to cook. Way to make a very classic meal look so good.

I just made pasta with broccoli in it for the kids and they ate it and liked it. I will have to try this one for them. Thanks for sharing with PPN!
