Chicken n Pasta in Tomatoes n Herbs


I have moulded the recipe slightly to blend with the Indian Taste. For e.g. Italians don't like the taste of garlic coming to their mouth while chewing food. They normally, cook garlic in oil first and take it out of pan. The flavour and smell remains in oil only. Also, I have used the red dry chilies to make it a little spicy. Well, you can also use king Fish or Prawns as well. However, my pasta always goes with Chicken.

For vegetarians, you can use Deep Fried Cauliflower instead of chicken. Also, you can add a little green bell pepper for the sauce.
