I have been a Pasta lover since forever and there are so many valid reasons for my fondness.
- Less cooking time – Quick fix to hunger or when you are too lazy to cook
- Easy to make
- Tastes delish
- No hard and fast rules
Yesterday when I was busy compiling that long post about Must See Places of Melbourne (you can check it out here, I have put alot of effort in compiling it and forcing you to give it a read/like/comment.. :p ); back to the topic, I wasn’t left with much time to cook. As always, Pasta came to the rescue. That is why I feel so deep affection towards it – saves me every time. ❤

If Arrabbiata sauce is unavailable you can use tomato paste and red chilli peppers as substitute.
Garlic paste can be used in case crushed garlic is not handy.
You can add or subtract any veggies you want.
Adjust the spices to suit your taste buds.
