Fusilli Pasta in Tomato Sauce | Easy Pasta Recipes

Pasta comes in our menu once in a while to get rid of the boredom of the usual breakfast routine. Last time I got fusilli pasta and tried a simple tomato sauce with it. I've already tried penne tomato pasta but this time its a variation with ingredients and with no pasta sauce as last time I had few readers asking for substitute for pasta sauce.

  • You can also add a hint of mint leaves paste to it to give a nice flavour.
