Spinach Fusilli pasta

Pasta is one of the favorite dish of kids.They are always ready to have it and why not after all we too love it once in a while.But I got bored of the same tomato Onion sauce for for my Indianized pasta.So this time I changed it a bit and made a little healthier.I replaced onions with spinach and used Fusilli pasta for a change :-)




Ingredients:
2 cups of uncooked Fusilli pasta
1 tablespoon of freshly chopped garlic
1 cup of cooked and pureed spinach or 1 cup of microwaved frozen spinach
2 freshly pureed tomatoes
2 green chilies
1 tablespoon of oil
Chilli Flakes to taste
1/2 cup Grated cheese (optional)
Salt to taste



Method:
Cook the pasta until it turns tender adding salt to the water in which the pasta is being cooked.
Heat oil in deep pan; add the garlic and chopped green chillies, saute until it turns slight golden. 
Add the tomato puree and cook with lid on until the tomato puree leaves oil.
Add the spinach puree and salt and allow it to cook with lid on low heat until it leaves oil again.
Add the cooked pasta to the pasta sauce and mix it well until all the pasta is coated with the sauce.Cover it and cook for another five minutes with lid ON.
Remove it from heat and allow it to sit for an hour before serving. 
It seems that the sauce is more for the pasta, but after an hour the pasta soaked the sauce well and the flavors have seeped in as well.
Warm the pasta before serving and sprinkle some cheese and chilli flakes.

Note:
Add some drops of oil and pinch of salt while cooking pasta.When pasta is done rinse it thoroughly in a strainer with cold running water to avoid any kind of sticking.
