Kids always love Pasta but unfortunately they get it only for dinner or on weekends because most moms think it is not suitable for sending in the tiffin box. The good news is that pasta, when prepared properly, can be comfortably packed for tiffin. Here, we prepare Pasta in Tomato Sauce in a way that is perfect for this purpose. Fusilli, when combined with tomato pulp, tomato ketchup, herbs and spring onions is so delicious that it retains its strong aroma and flavour for over four hours. A dash of cream improves the texture and consistency of the dish, making it all the more appealing.

Pasta in tomato sauce.. this is one of the favourite tiffin snack for the kids, its tangy creamy taste of the pasta is just too good. And the best part is it stays fresh and moist in the tiffin box upto 5 hours. A thumsbs up for this recipe.
