macaroni n baby corn in a fresh basil tomato sauce
this one i make mostly for a quick evening snack as dear hubby returns home really hungry.......the fresh ingredients are the key to this recipe, as for us this kind of a fresh n crunchy
( due to baby corn) snack lifts up the energy levels in the evening....
boil a cup of macaroni (whole wheat) in lots of salted water till al dante' and drain.........
meanwhile slice about 6-8 baby corns diagonally
chop an onion and 2 fat cloves of garlic finely
chop 2 big red tomatoes in the chopper or in the chutny jar of the mixie......
now heat a tbsp of oil in a pan and throw in the garlic first,then the sliced baby corns and the onions after a minute ....
after a couple of minutes dunk in the chopped or pureed raw tomato with 2 tsp of red chilly flakes , salt to taste and cook covered for 2 minutes..
now throw in the cooked macaroni , stir to mix and tear about 20 leaves of fresh basil leaves with hands and throw them into the cooking mixture........turn off the flame, cover and let it sit for 2 minutes till the flavors infuse.......
serve hot topped with grated cheese of your choice ....i serve it mostly without cheese.....the fresh basil alone is enough to make you drool.....and if you like corn, nothing like this.
looks great tasty and simpleReplyDelete
