Penne Pasta - Indian Style

So, I tried making Pasta at home and it turned out to be a surprise hit. The family loved it and what do you know, I loved it as well. Here's what I did:

Penne Pasta Recipe

1. 250gms Penne Pasta
2. 1 Capsicum
3. 2 Tomatoes
4. 5 Button Mushrooms
5. 2 Green Chillies
6. 350gms of readymade Pasta Sauce (Tify is a good one)
7. 10 Green Olives (Optional)
8. 4 table spoon Olive Oil
9. 5 Jalapenos (Optional)
10. 4 table spoon Salt
11. Mozzarella Cheese

1. Take two and a half litres of water, put in the salt and bring it to boil. Then put in the pasta for 12 minutes till al dente. Test it before you take them out, should be soft to chew but not stick to the teeth.
2. Chop the mushrooms, capsicum, tomatoes and green chillies.
3. Heat a pan with the olive oil and sauté the chopped vegetables. Mix with the readymade sauce on low flame.
4. Take out the pasta and mix with the sauce
5. Garnish with shredded cheese. If you are feeling exotic, top it up with chopped olives and jalapenos.
6. If you like your pasta hot and are using canned jalapenos, use 2 table spoon of the brine liquid it comes in to spice up the dish.
