Bow Tie Pasta in Tomato Sauce

Pasta is all time favorite for many of us, as it is very easy to prepare and not very time consuming. Even a school child could prepare this meal,  preparing and having 3 to 7 course meal every day is very time consuming and can be really boring at times. So I always try to make simple dishes in between to make life interesting.

There are many types of pasta named according to their shapes, there are Penne Rigate, Fusili, Fusili Spirale, Farfalle (Bow tie), Gnocchi, Conchiglie Rigate and many other shapes. I have tried almost all the shape and for this recipe I have used Farfalle or also known as Bow Tie pasta. I'm sure feeding children with this cute shaped pasta is total fun.

Now let's check on the recipe, I made this sauce from scratch.


1 cup of bow tie pasta
1/2 cups of tomato chunks
1 cup of canned tomato paste/puree
1 cup of minced chicken
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp onion diced
2 garlic diced
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste
Water to boil pasta
Handful of grated cheese

Boil pasta with some salt  and few drops of olive oil until the pasta is well cooked, drain and set aside.

In another pan, pour oil add in garlic, onion, stir for a minute and add minced chicken. When the minced chicken almost cooked add in tomato chunks, tomato puree, salt, dried oregano, ground black pepper and let it simmer until the chicken is completely cooked.

Simmer until the sauce is thickened, pour  sauce over the boiled pasta and serve with some grated cheese. You can even stir in the sauce into pasta before serving.

Do try and let me know how it turned out..
