Angel hair pasta with Sausage sauce..


I had some pasta left in my grocery shelf. I had actually bought it as a substitute for vermicelli for making payasam/kheer. Yesterday i decided to put it to its actual use. To go with that i made a sauce of my own with some of the left overs. The sauce and the pasta can be made in a jiffy and is an ideal option for dinner especially if you are tired after a busy day..

Ingredients You Need:
Angel hair pasta
1 Medium size Onion
Half of a green Capsicum
2 Cups of Spaghetti sauce
One Sausage link
2 Cloves of Garlic
Pepper to taste
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tblspoon

Preparation
  • Finely chop the garlic, onion, capsicum and keep side. Cut the sausage into small circles.
  • Boil water in a pan and cook pasta in it. Add a little bit of oil as well.
For the sauce:
  • Heat Oil in a wok.
  • Put the finely chopped garlic and saute for a minute
  • Add the finely chopped onion and capsicum to it and saute well.
  • Now Add the sausage pieces to it and fry well.
  • After 2-3 minutes pour the spaghetti sauce into this and stir well.
  • Add pepper and salt according to your taste.
  • Cover and cook it for some time and your yummy sauce is ready to serve.

Different tryouts:

  • In the same recipe instead of the sausage, you can add boneless chicken breast pieces.
  • To make the dish more healthy you can add chopped carrots, beans and other veggies to the sauce.
