Creamy Tomato Pasta Recipe

This red sauce pasta is absolutely delicious and ideal for summers. It’s made with just a few ingredients like fusilli pasta, garlic, onions, tomato puree and few dried herbs. To add a little extra flavour, I have added Maggi magic chicken cubes. If you are vegetarian then you can totally skip it. Serve this tangy and spicy pasta with lots of cheese and butter. I hope you’ll like it.
