How to make Pasta in Red Sauce:

  1. To make Red Sauce Pasta, first bring to a boil a large vessel full of water.
  2. Meanwhile, wash and clean 8 large tomatoes. Use bright, red, firm tomatoes.
  3. Scoop out and discard the eyes of the tomatoes using the tip of the sharp knife.
  4. Make a criss-cross cuts at the base of each tomato. This helps in easy peeling of skin after blanching.
  5. Put the tomatoes in boiling water and boil for around 3 to 4 minutes. You will notice the skin peeling off.
  6. Using a slotted spoon, remove the tomatoes.
  7. Put in cold water for some time. The refreshing of tomatoes by adding them in cold water stops the cooking process and preserves the rich colour of tomatoes. Also, it helps in easy peeling of skin.
  8. When the tomatoes are cool, peel and discard the skin. Start peeling from the cut portion so, it comes out easily.
  9. Remove the seeds and chop the tomatoes. We need 2 cups. Keep aside.
  10. To make Pasta in Red sauce (Red Sauce Pasta), in a deep non-stick pan, add enough water to boil the pasta in.
  11. Add 1/2 tsp oil to it.
  12. Now add the salt. We add the salt at this stage as it not only helps the water come to a boil faster but also gives flavor to the pasta. Generously salt the water.
  13. Let the water come to a rapid boil. Once it starts boiling, add the pasta. We have used Fusilli here. You can use any other pasta.We have taken about 1 cup raw pasta.
  14. Cook on a medium flame for 12 minutes, while stirring occasionally. The pasta should be cooked until they are al dente i.e. cooked to be firm to the bite and should not be mushy or sticky.
  15. Drain well using a strainer and throw the water away.
  16. Refresh the pasta with cold water. This ensures that they stop cooking.
  17. Transfer to a clean and dry plate.
  18. Drizzle about 1/2 tsp oil onto it.
  19. Toss the pasta over gently with your hands, This will ensure that the pasta doesn't stick to each other.
  20. Cover with a lid and keep aside. This will prevent the pasta from drying out. 
  21. Heat the olive oil in a broad non-stick pan. You can even add a little butter if you feel like it.

  24. Then add the onions.
  25. Also add the garlic for an intense flavor.
  26. Mix well and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes. Do not brown the onions and the garlic, they should be translucent.
  27. Add the capsicum for a crunch. You can add different colored capsicums here.
  28. Sauté on a medium flame for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  29. Add the blanched and chopped tomatoes.
  30. Also add the salt.
  31. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  32. Remove the bayleaves and discard them. You can also remove the peppercorns if you wish to.
  33. Now add the tomato purée and the tomato ketchup.
  34. Furthermore, add the oregano. We have used the dried variant but you can use fresh oregano herbs as well.
  35. Add the chilli flakes for spice.
  36. Also, add the sugar, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  37. Now, add the cream.
  38. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for another 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring continuously. We stir continuously as we do not want the cream to get curdled.

I find cutting tomatoes using a smallish knife with a serrated edge is much easier than one with a smooth blade. Lovely recipe, simple but very tasty. 😍
