Pasta quick and easy

pasta with meat
2 cups of pasta
1 cup tomatoes
1/2 cup onions
1 tbsp curry leaves optional
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp ginger grated

If using meat
2 tbsp oil
1 cup minced meat
1/2 tsp chillie powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp coriander leaves

Boil pasta in salted water with 1 tsp of oil according to the directions on the package.

Heat oil, then add onions, curry leaves if using, ginger, garlic, meat and spices, then add tomatoes and cook the meat covered in low heat until it is cooked. If you like add the tomatoes without skin or grate the tomatoes into the meat, this will be like adding sauce.

Put the pasta into a colander, hold it under cold water. Then toss the cooked drained pasta into the sauce. Add pomegranate seeds or diced bell peppers or cheese on top and serve hot.

If you don't have minced meat or you want to make it vegetarian avoid the meat and spices and make a sauce; heat oil add onions, curry leaves, ginger, garlic, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Then add it to the cooked pasta.
