How to make Italian Pasta Sizzler Recipe

  1. To begin making the Italian Pasta Sizzler Recipe, firstly we will prepare the roasted vegetables.

  2. Heat a wide pan with oil and roast the potatoes and other vegetables each separately, adding salt and pepper to them. 

  3. When they are roasted and slightly crisp on the outside, but soft inside, switch off and set them aside.

  4. The next step is to make the Pasta. Heat a wide pan over low flame and add garlic.

  5. Fry for 1-2 minutes or till the garlic is light brown and immediately add pureed tomatoes and salt. Let it simmer for 4-5 minutes.

  6.  Now add water and the corn flour mixture. Once the mixture thickens, switch off and pour half of the sauce into the cooked pasta, mix well and set it aside.

  7. Reserve the other half to serve while assembling the sizzler.

  8. The next step is to make the Garlic Cheese bread. To the crushed garlic,  add butter, Italian herbs and mix well.

  9.  Spread the garlic butter on one side of each bread.

  10. Heat a skillet with butter and place the bread for toasting on low flame. Sprinkle cheese on top of the bread. Close the pan for just 1 minute.

  11. When the cheese begins to melt, remove the garlic bread and set it aside.

  12. Alternatively, you can bake the prepared garlic bread in your preheated oven for 5-6 minutes at 180 degrees C.

  13. The final step is to assemble the sizzler. Grease the sizzler pan with butter. Line the pan with cabbage leaves.

  14. Place the pan on the gas stove over low heat. As the sizzler pan is heating, arrange the roasted vegetables, and pasta.

  15. Heat the pasta sauce and when the pan is screaming hot, pour it over the pasta .

  16. Switch off the gas and add a 1/2 teaspoon of melted butter on the sides of the pan and this will help it to sizzle.

  17. Add the garlic bread to the pan, and carefully lift the sizzler pan and place it on the wooden board (part of the sizzler pan) and serve it to your family. Your yummy Italian Pasta Sizzler is ready.

  18. Serve Italian Pasta Sizzler on its own for a delicious Italian meal along with the Mango Iced Tea Recipe to make your meal complete.

If you do not have a sizzler pan, you can use a grill pan to make the sizzler.

Line the grill pan with cabbage leaves and follow the above recipe.

While heating the sizzler pan, be extremely careful, especially while adding butter. 

While assembling the sizzler pan, always keep the flame on low.

 You can add a teaspoon of vinegar along with butter to help it sizzle more. This is an optional step.

You can use your choice of seasonal vegetables to make the sizzler. 

 Adjust spice quantity according to your preference.
