We enjoy macaroni a lot particularly with crisp toasted garlic bread, it's easy and healthy too provided you use wholewheat/ hardwheat semolina pasta/macaroni.Here I have purposefully avoided adding any cream based sauces in an attempt to make it healthy and possibly low-cal.The addition of tomatoes makes this pasta tangy and delicious not to mention upping the VIT.C, VIT.A AND LYCOPENE content,The inclusion of cheese is not that much and can easily be substituted with paneer/tofu if you are watcing your weight or for any other health reasons.
- Hardwheat semolina macaroni/pasta of choice-1 cup (boiled with salt and 1/2 tsp oil)
- Tomatoes-3 large
- Onion-1 small, diced
- Oregano-1/2 tsp
- Sugar-1/2 tsp
- Vinegar-1/2 tsp
- Freshly ground black pepper-1/4 tsp
- Olive oil-2 tbsp
- Cheese-acc. to preference
Boil tomatoes and onion till mushy and soft, let cool and puree in a blender.Heat olive oil, add the tomato puree and cook till it is a thick paste, add the oregano, sugar, vinegar, seasoning and lastly tip in the boiled macaroni cook for another five minutes, add the diced cubes of cheese and serve, the heat from the pasta will partially melt the cheese cubes, you can add fresh basil/veggies of choice too if desired.Serve piping hot.
