Hello , everyone .
Welcome to home cooking with Mema Subramanian pastas are always enjoyable .
And today I'm going to show you a very interesting pink sauce pasta .
As the name indicates , the pink sauce is a combination of this nice rich tomato sauce and the mildly flavored white sauce .
This is going to be a very interesting recipe and I've made it using penne pasta .
So let's get started and check out the recipe for this recipe .
First , we're going to cook the pasta shells , boil a pot of water , add a little salt .
So adding about three cups of penny pasta , it's a 2 50 ML cup .
So you can use any pasta of your choice to make this recipe .
So we need to cook the pasta till they are alden takes because when you add them to the sauce , it , you will be continuing to cook the pasta .
So you don't want to overcook it now .
So when the pasta is almost about 90% done , strain it and keep it aside .
So next , we're going to blanch , the tomatoes just make two slits on the bottom of the tomatoes .
This will help to blanche them faster and the skin will come off easily .
Boil some water in a pot and add the tomatoes to the hot water .
So , I've taken about eight small tomatoes for this recipe .
So once the tomatoes are blanched , remove them from the water , peel off the skin chop them into pieces and grind them to a nice fine puree .
Keep the tomato fury aside .
So now we're gonna start making the pasta to a nice white pan .
Add about 70 5 g of unsalted butter .
Once the butter melts add about one tablespoon of oil .
Next , add finely chopped garlic cloves .
About 10 .
So you can use olive oil or refined oil .
Don't use anything with a very strong smell of flavor .
Now add one large onion , finely chopped , sort it for about two minutes .
Next , I'm adding a cup of chopped green capsicum , add a cup of chopped red capsicum .
So make sure they're all of equal size pieces .
Now add a cup of boiled pecan and mix everything together .
Once you've cooked the vegetables for about 2 to 3 minutes , add one teaspoon of salt , one teaspoon of pepper , one teaspoon of red chili flakes and about two teaspoons of Italian seasoning , mix everything together .
So the seasoning is very important because it's gonna add a lot of flavor to the pasta .
If you don't have Italian seasoning , you can use oregano as well .
So the next step is to make the white sauce .
I'm adding about two tablespoons of that is all purpose flour to the vegetables .
So I'm going to make this a little differently .
I'm going to show it to you in a different method .
Mix the that is all purpose flour along with vegetables and cook it for about a minute .
So this is going to coat all the vegetables .
So now I'm going to add about one cup of milk .
Now gradually add milk till you get a nice thick creamy consistency .
Now that you have this nice creamy consistency , add the tomato puree and mix that in .
You can see how beautifully the sauce is coming together .
Now I'm just going to add one tablespoon of tomato ketchup .
This is optional .
So if you don't add tomato ketchup , you don't have to , another ingredient that I'm adding is one teaspoon of paprika powder .
So if you don't have paprika , you can also use the regular red chili powder .
Again , this is also optional .
So to make the sauce all the more richer and cheesier , we're gonna add four slices of cheese and just mix everything together till it's all well blended .
If you feel the sauce is too thick , you can just dilute it a little bit with some milk .
Now add the cooked pasta shells and mix everything together till the pasta is nicely coated in the sauce .
I'll give you a few links to all the other pasta recipes that I've made .
You can check them out as well .
So finally I'm going to add a handful of basil leaves and mix that in .
It'll give a nice flavor to the pasta .
This delicious vegetable pink sauce pasta is ready to be served .
Make sure you serve it nice and hot .
I'm serving it with some nice bread by the side .
You can enjoy it as is another tip to go with it is in case the pasta becomes a little dry .
You can always add some warm milk to get that creaminess into the pasta .
This is a wonderful and easy recipe that you can try at home .
It's got these beautiful flavors and it tastes perfect .

It makes for a great meal .
