Tomato and basil multigrain pasta

Ingredients : 

  • 1 pack Naturally Yours Multigrain pasta
  • 6-7 blanched tomatoes, peeled and finely chopped.
  • Few basil leaves.
  • 2-3 garlic cloves finely chopped.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning mix.
  • Chilli flakes to taste
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil


To cook multigrain pasta

  1. Take about 2L of water in a large pan and boil on high heat. Add a tsp of salt in it.
  2. Once the water has come to a rolling boil, add Naturally Yours Multi grain Pasta.
  3. Stir once to make sure that the pasta is not sticking together or to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Continue to boil on high heat, stirring occasionally, until the water returns to a rolling boil (about 2 minutes)
  5. Once the water begins to bubble and foam, you may wish to turn down the temperature a bit to keep it from boiling over
  6. Boil for another 5 to 7 minutes.
  7. Test a piece of pasta to see whether it is the texture you’re looking for (cooked but still a bit firm)
  8. Drain the water and keep the pasta aside. Rinse it and then toss it with a bit of oil to make sure that the pasta doesn’t stick to itself
