Fettuccini with Tomato and Basil from Archana's Kitchen

I had been planning to try this pasta recipe from Archana's Kitchen for a very long time. It seemed pretty easy and yummy too. So tried it out last Sunday, took the pictures too but finally got time now to put them up.

For the recipe, please visit Archana's blog here.

It uses some fresh and very colorful ingredients - some tomatoes, I used some fresh tomatoes and some tomato paste too which I wanted to finish off. Basil (I love the aroma and the taste). Garlic and some fettuccine or any ribbon pasta. 

The fettuccine was boiled and cooked as per the instructions on the box. I think, you can use even a whole wheat based pasta if you prefer! I added a teeny weeny bit of olive oil to the pasta after draining to keep the strands separate. 

The sauce was yummy, flavorful and looked great - one of the best I have ever made or had! Bowls were licked off!! :) 

Simple and basic ingredients like a good quality olive oil and fresh ground black pepper are just the touch needed to make it a healthy and appetizing meal. 

I enjoyed making this pasta and eating it even more. Hope you enjoy it too. 
Take care, Have a great week ahead!!
