Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Whole wheat pasta is a healthier option over pasta made from refined flour. Not only does it provide all complex carbohydrates, but also provides long lasting energy levels. Being loaded with fiber improves overall digestive health, improves functional capacity and also stronger bones and immunity. Additional to its benefits is the presence of the super- herbs basil and parsley. These anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial foods are high not only in vitamin C and vitamin K but also iron and calcium. The presence of these ingredients makes the whole wheat pasta in the red sauce more flavorful and energizing.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Whole wheat penne - 1 katori
  • Olive oil - 1 tsp
  • Garlic - 2 cloves
  • Dried parsley - 1 tbsp
  • Onions, chopped - ½ small
  • Dried basil - 1 tsp
  • Ground black pepper - to taste
  • Stewed tomatoes/ tomato puree - 2 medium size
  • Crushed red pepper flakes - 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste

DIRECTIONS:
Step 1 In a medium saucepan over low heat, warm oil and saute garlic, heat through until the garlic turns translucent, not brown.  Step 2 Add onion and cook over low heat until translucent for 5 to 10 minutes. Add parsley, basil and ground black pepper; stir.  Step 3 Add tomato puree and cover, raise heat to medium and bring to a strong simmer. Lower heat and add red pepper flakes. Cover saucepan and cook for 25 to 35 minutes.  Step 4 The sauce can be run in the food processor for 2 to 3 seconds to achieve a more uniform sauce or let the sauce cook over medium-low heat uncovered for 10 minutes or until it thickens.  Step 5 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 6 to 8 minutes.  Step 6 Drain and serve with sauce.
