Spaghetti with Tangy Tomato Sauce

Spaghetti_Tangy_Tomato_Sauce_1 Spaghetti, a type of pasta is my son’s favorite dish. I serve this with tomato sauce and cooked vegetables. I love to prepare this tangy tomato sauce at home.

This is a very simple recipe and I prefer to add some vegetables of different colours like capsicum, peas, sweet corn and carrot. I used both thick and thin variety spaghetti.


  • Spaghetti thick variety – 1 pack
  • Spaghetti thin variety – ¼ pack
  • Carrot – 2 no
  • Capsicum – 1 no
  • Peas – ½ cup
  • Corn – ½ cup
  • Coriander leaves – for garnishing
  • For tangy tomato sauce
    • Tomato – 3 no
    • Onion – 1 no
    • Green chilli – 2 no
    • Red chilli powder – 1 tea spoon
    • Soy sauce – 1 tea spoon
    • Turmeric powder – pinch
    • Black pepper powder – ½ tea spoon
    • Sugar – ½ tea spoon (optional)
    • Salt – as per taste
    • Oil – 1 tea spoon



  • Chop onion, capsicum, carrot and green chilli; boil corn and peas separately with pinch of salt; fry capsicum and carrot separately with pinch of salt and keep.
