Vegetable Pasta in Red Sauce - Red Sauce Pasta with Veggies Recipe

Hello foodies,
With the onset of winters, a warm red sauce pasta is one of my favorite cravings, with loads of cheese on top! I made one recently for my son’s school party. 

So let’s note the ingredients first:

Six ripened tomatoes
Sweet corn, 100 gms
Carrot, 100 gms
Green capsicum, 100 gms
Red capsicum, 100 gms
Yellow capsicum, 100gms
Salt, to taste
Oregano, 1 tsp
Mixed herbs, ½ tsp
Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
Water, 1 liter
Penne Pasta, 250 gms
Salt, to taste
Water, 1 liter
Shredded cheese, to decorate

Step 1:
Take water in a pan, add 1 tbsp olive oil, salt to taste and bring it to a boil.

Step 2:
Add pasta (I have taken penne pasta) and cook as per the instructions on the pack. I wanted the pasta to be tender so I cooked for a good 10 minutes.
Step 3:
Once cooked/al dente, drain pasta and pour cold water over it (to stop further cooking) and keep it aside.

Step 4:
For making the red sauce, start by taking ripened tomatoes and use a knife to put a cross on top. Then blanch these tomatoes for 5 minutes in boiling water. You will notice the skin of tomatoes starts peeling off. Remove from the pan and place the tomatoes to cool.

Step 5:
Peel the skin of the tomatoes, remove the seeds and in a mixer, puree the tomatoes to a smooth and fine paste.

Step 6:
In a pan, heat1 tbsp olive oil, add the tomato puree, herbs, oregano, salt to taste and the diced/cubed vegetables.

Step 7:
Cook till the vegetables are tender but not mushy.

Step 8:
Add in the boiled pasta and toss well till the pasta is coated with sauce.

Step 9:
Add grated cheese on top and serve hot!
