Mushroom Pasta With Mint And Tomato Sauce. This is my new innovation to pasta. Pasta is something like can be cooked with any kind of sauce and with almost any ingredients, that is the most important thing I like while cooking pasta, the more you play with ingredients the tastier the pasta is. It has happened with me many time that I plan to cook some other recipe and I end up cooking something else and I don't know how it turns out to be the best dish, specially in Italian food.
Yesterday I had a plan to cook just plain tomato sauce paste, but I added mint and mushroom to and it was quite a delicious pasta, with fresh mint flavour in it.. I have just added the mint leaves, if you want to grind the mint leaves with tomato go head and try and do let me know the taste... You don't need any side dish for this, it has everything in it. So cook and enjoy.
1 cup paste (any shape pasta)
3 button mushroom (roughly chopped)
1 medium onion (roughly chopped)
1 cup tomato puree
2 green chilli
1tsp cruched ginger and garlic
Hand full of fresh mint leaves
Pinch of black pepper
Pinch of red chilli flakes
1/4tsp mixed herbs or Oregano
Salt to taste.
Boil the pasta as per the instruction on the pack and keep it aside.
In a wok, add butter, when butter melts, add crushed ginger and garlic, sautee to light brown, add onion and green chilli, sautee for a minutes. Then add mushroom and mint leaves, fry for another 2 minutes, add tomato puree, black pepper powder, mixed herbs, chilli flakes and salt, cook till the tomato has changed color to red, that will take about 2 to 3 minutes.
Now add boiled paste and mix everything nicely and sautee for another 2 to 3 minutes.. Then sprinkle some more mint leaves on top.
Serve hot hot...
