Linguine is a kind of pasta which looks like flattened noodles. Here I have used linguine in tomato herb sauce. It can be relished with meat or veggies.
200 gms Linguine
8-10 florets of broccoli
3 chicken sausages
1 tsp dried mixed Italian herbs
5 medium size tomatoes
4 garlic flakes
1 tsp red chilly powder
6-7 chopped garlic
1 tsp sugar
3 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste
Boil pasta with salt till it is al dente ( firm but not hard ). Drain it & drizzle some oil on it so that it doesn't stick to each other.
Blanch broccoli with salt for 2 minutes & keep aside. Stir fry chicken sausages & keep aside
To make the tomato sauce
Roughly chopped tomatoes, onion & garlic flakes. Heat oil in pan.Then add garlic & stir fry it for a while.Take care not to let the garlic turn brown.
Then add tomatoes & onions .Saute it till it is cooked. Add some salt, sugar & red chilly powder.
Let this mixture cool. Then grind it to paste. Pasta sauce is ready.
