Fresh Tomato Basil Pasta with Spinach

The Fresh Tomato Basil Pasta with Spinach Recipe is one of the classic Italian Vegetarian Dishes that Italians make at home for a quick weeknight dinner. In one of my trips to Italy, the one thing that stood out was the abundant use of vegetables in Pasta's and other dishes. And the other thing that stood out even more was the freshness of the pasta sauce. There is something special about their tomatoes, that gives a vibrant colour and a subtle sweetness.

In this Tomato Basil Pasta with Spinach Recipe I have tried to bring back those flavors I loved eating there. I hope you enjoy it too.

Qorma Baamia



Baamia is nothing but our bhindi/okra in Afghan. 'Qorma Baamia' - Baby Okra cooked in rich tomato-onion puree! Had this gravy a few weeks back at Afghani Restaurant and it was finger-licking good. I love experimenting on this versatile vegetable - Okra (bhindi) every now n then! But so far, I never imagined myself cooking bhindi in gravy directly. I rried replicating the same in-house and BINGO! It was as good as the restaurant version of it.
