Through The Looking Glass

"See the world through the eyes of a creative contributor who loves to illustrate the small
adventures that life creates. My hope is to put down in words and portraits especially those things that are apparent yet not always on parchment. Today unique thoughts, accounts, illustrations, and experiences may not remain distinctive but satisfaction can still be derived from the recognizable sentiment of them and from the faithful bonds they create."

~Fettuccine with Red Sauce Lunch~

The other day, I was craving pasta. Yes, there are some of us who crave that kind of thing. My eye caught the fettuccine pasta label and I thought, why not? Let's make this into a quick lunch. My hubby was quite happy with the taste and even I said, YUM!

  • Fettuccine noodles - 1/2 the box ~ boiled and drained
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Onion - 1/2 medium ~ cut fine lengthwise
  • Salt - to taste
  • Green chilies - 2 or to taste ~ cut fine
  • Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
  • Black Pepper Powder - 1 tsp
  • Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
  • Dry Basil - 1 tsp
  • Green Pepper - 1/4 of one ~ finely chopped
  • Green Onion - 3 stalks ~  finely chop (1 root has about 3 stalks on it)
  • Pasta Sauce - 1/2 cup (less or more) ~ We used tomato garlic sauce.
  • Cheese - for garnishing ~ choose your favorite. We went with pepper jack.
1. First add pasta to water and start boiling since this takes a while. Some people add a pinch of salt in hopes of cooking it faster. 
2. Heat oil and add onions. Add a dash of salt for the onions to cook faster.
3. Add the green chillies. Mix and cook for a few mins. 
4. Now add the dry spices, turmeric, pepper powder, garam masala, and dry basil and cook. Add a tsp of water if it threatens to burn.
5. Now add the green pepper and cook for about 3 mins. Then add the green onion and cook for 2 mins. Then add desired pasta sauce and mix in well for another 1-2 mins.
6. Add more salt, only if needed. 

~ Serve hot on top of fettuccine pasta, garnish with desired cheese, and get ready to adore the taste!
