Indian Style Tomato Spinach Pasta recipe with step by step photos
  1. To make Indian style tomatoes spinach pasta | creamy tomato spinach pasta recipe |  one pot pasta | heat a little olive oil in a deep non-stick pan. Almost all Italian cooking makes use of olive oil and hence we have used it here. 
  2. Once the oil heats up, add the garlic. It will start to sizzle.
  3. Now add the sliced onions to the pan.
  4. Add chilli flakes to give a spicy kick to the pasta.
  5. Now add the tomato purée. We have used store bought tomato puree which is concentrated in taste and has a slight sweetness to it.
  6. Finally add the mixed herbs. Mixed herbs contain seasonings like oregano, thyme, basil and pepper among many which are used in excessively in Italian cuisine.
  7. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally. After 10 minutes the rawness of the onions and garlic will disappear.
  8. Add the blanched and chopped spinach. This gives a nice green color and a somewhat earthy flavor to the pasta.
  9. Now add the cherry tomato halves, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally or till the tomatoes have started to release their juices but still hold their shape.
  10. Once the veggies are cooked, add the boiled pasta to the pan. You can use any shape you like – fusilli, bow shaped and even spaghetti.
  11. Also add milk at this stage. Since the dish doesn’t have a sauce per se, we add milk to give it a creamy consistency which will not make it seem dry.
  12. We will also add the cheese and salt at this stage. No pasta is complete without the addition of cheese!
  13. Mix this well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally to coat the pasta well.
  14. Garnish with walnuts. They add a crunchy and nutty element to the Indian style tomatoes spinach pasta | creamy tomato spinach pasta recipe |  one pot pasta |
