Tomato Based Pasta Sauce

              There are a number ways to make sauces for pasta. Today, I will give you a tomato based pasta sauce that can go with majority types of pastas like Penne, Fusilli, Bow Tie, Macaroni etc. It is also a healthier alternative with all the fresh ingredients


  • 5-6 diced Tomatoes
  • 1 cup diced Onions
  • 1 cup diced Green Peppers
  • 2-3 cloves crushed Garlic
  • 2 tbsp crushed Red Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Oregano
  • 2 tsp dried Basil leaves
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat some Olive oil in the pan
  • Add garlic and onions and saute them till the onions turn translucent
  • Now add the diced green peppers and tomatoes and mix it well
  • Add salt, cover and cook till the tomatoes are mushy.
  • Then add the dried spices like red pepper, oregano, basil leaves, black pepper and simmer it for 7-10 mins

  • Serve it hot with pasta of your choice. I love with multi-color bow tie pasta.
