    Dinner and Movie...with comfort food

    Today was like any other day, when I got the intense desire to cook up some wholesome, easy comfort food. It's been snowing all day and luckily for me, the weekend's here. That only means one thing, me and sweet huuby have time for togetherness! With a couple of movies that we've been dying to watch for quite some time waiting for us, I decided to make warm delicious food that we could enjoy on the couch watching them. That's when I thought of pasta. We don't usually have pasta that often. But when we do, I do the works, with bread sticks or garlic bread and all! I decided on making the Arabiatta sauce, a tomato-based spicy pasta sauce. This sauce usually calls for a pinch or two of chilli flakes to spice it up, but I decided to use the trusted old red chili powder to bring on the heat. The main reason being that I don't think chili flakes are hot enough, at least not the ones in my kitchen! We will have this pasta with deliciously warm Pizza Rolls and enjoy the comforting feel. Penne Arabiatta (Pasta with a Spicy Sauce)

    Ingredients: 2 cups penne pasta 1 medioum-sized onion chopped 2-3 cloved of garlic, minced 1 cup chopped tomatoes 1 tsp dried oregano 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley 1 tbsp olive oil 1/2 tsp red chili powder 1 tsp tomato paste salt, to taste Method: Boil penne pasta with some salt and set aside. Heat olive oil in a pan and add minced garlic. Saute for a few seconds till frangrant and add chopped onions. Cook for a few minutes on medium-low heat till onions become tender and transparent, and then add parsley, salt, chili powder and oregano. Cook for a minute or two and add in tomatoes and tomato paste. Cover cook till tomatoes pulp and start to form a sauce. Simmer on low heat for 7-8 minutes and toss in pasta. Serve warm with a spinkle to fresh parsley and grated cheese.
