have not ventured into recipe writing before this.
(Psst, thats because I haven't ventured much into the kitchen before this). .
Self mockery apart, I had not eaten too much Italian before wedding and hence found Balaji's affection for Italian food amusing. But over time, I have grown to love it as well. After a long day at office, we wanted to finish dinner with a quick and simple dish. He read some recipies and came up with this idea of Tomato Spinach Pasta soup which he promised would be quick and tasty and filling. We enjoy that quiet when I chop vegetables and he tries to cook something exotic and vive-versa. We just watch the vegetables boiling over, consult each other about trivial things like salt and spices. I cannot explain it, but its strangely fun when we make dinner together.
Back to business. Heres what you need:
-4 Tomatoes finely chopped
-1 cup of Spinach finely chopped
-1 cup of pasta boiled
-Salt to taste
-1 tbsp Lemon juice
Heat olive oil in a pan, add the tomatoes, let it boil nicely into a paste. Add the boiled pasta and stir for a few minutes. Add the pasta sauce and stir. Add the spinach and close the lid. Add salt , chili powder and pepper powder to taste.
Dinner ready. Ensure you have some bread to go with it, else you will end up hungry in the next one hour of dinner like we did.
