Saltas needed


Boil water and add little salt and olive oil to it...Mix and then add the noodles and cook (as per pack instructions) for required time according to its type...In a saute pan, heat olive oil and add crushed garlic followed by veggies one by one...add bell pepper/ capsicum and white part of green onions last....Cook veggies little bit crunchy...

Add tomato paste to veggies and mix...(For tomato paste,boil tomatoes in water for 5 mins., remove skin and puree it) ...Add little water and boil for 2 minutes...Then add dried oregano,thyme and basil (or fresh ones if u have)....
