While I was starving yesterday with my miser instincts on high, I decided to look for some easy pasta recipe because Penne Pasta was the only ingredient I could find at home that I felt like eating. After looking around for sometime, I decided to make one recipe that I found on StudentRecipes.

Alfredo pasta at wolfgang & company, connaught place, delhi

The most amazing thing about the recipe I chose was that it was easy and I had all the ingredients required for this recipe. I did make some variations though. And it turned out to be so good. The smell was amazing. After days, I felt like I was back in Chandigarh eating out at different restaurants and trying out new food. I could actually fill my tummy with the aroma. But then, I was too hungry.

When I tried this dish, it was a brilliant combination of spicy and sweet food. The taste of Italian herbs blended with two of my favorite sauces was something I experienced for the first time and it was really yum!

Let me show you how I made this pasta and trust me! It is super easy pasta recipe!

Ingredients Used For Super Easy Pasta Recipe

  1. 2 cup Penne Pasta
  2. 1 tbsp cooking oil
  3. 2 medium sized onions (chopped)
  4. 3 green chillies (finely chopped)
  5. 2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  6. 1 tsp crushed basil leaves
  7. 3 tbsp tomato ketchup
  8. 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  9. 1 tbsp caesar salad dressing
  10. 1 tsp chilli flakes
  11. 1 tsp oregano
  12. 1 tsp salt

(Serves 2)

Here’s the easy pasta recipe!

Start with a pan of boiling water and put 2 cups of pasta in it.

After a few minutes, add salt. Let the pasta boil for 5-7 minutes. Just boil it until it becomes soft and can be easily cut even with a wooden spatula.


Add basil leaves a few minutes before taking the pan off heat.

Sieve the pasta. Let the water get out and keep it aside.

Take another pan and put oil in it and add chopped onions. Saute until the onions get brown.

Now, add chilli and garlic. The taste of the pasta largely depends upon the garlic. So, use as much you want. Saute for about  3-4 minutes or until garlic is properly cooked. The raw smell of garlic would be gone once it is cooked.

Add tomato sauce.

tomato ketchup 1 tbsp

Add mayonnaise.


Add caesar salad dressing.

Add oregano and chilli flakes. I also used garlic powder. It is not necessary to use but as I had a full can of garlic powder which never gets used in my kitchen, I decided to put it in. Saute for 2-3 minutes.

Once the sauce is completely mixed, add the pasta and mix until it is nicely mixed with the sauce. Once it is done, leave it on gas at sim for 2 minutes.

Serve with a bottle of coke and relish.
