Macaroni Red Sauce Pasta Recipe (+Garlic Bread Recipe)

by - May 16, 2020

The Macaroni Red Sauce Pasta Recipe is a perfect tangy Italian dish and is quite easy to make and suitable for kids as well as adults.

The most essential ingredient for making it, after the macaroni, are the tomatoes. The more the red sauce you make, the better your pasta tastes. After tomatoes, next are your seasonings such as garlic, salt, oregano, chilli flakes, black pepper, and mixed herbs as they are crucial in determining the taste. Unfortunately, I did not have chilli flakes this time around, so I crushed red Kashmiri chillies and used them instead.

The last time I'd made the Macaroni Red Sauce Pasta Recipe, I remember, the sauce wasn't sufficient and the pasta seemed undercooked too. Which is why when I was making it this time, I made sure the sauce is sufficient. It is recommended to consume this as soon as it is made or else the sauce gets absorbed in the macaroni and overall, the dish becomes thick and tasteless.

(You may want to separate the macaroni from each other using your hands.)
