1 pack Fusilli pasta cooked as per instructions on the pack
2 tomatoes finely chopped
1 onion finely chopped
1 tsp of red chilly powder/paprika
1 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste
Few basil or cilantro/coriander leaves
Pasta should be cooked in boiling water to an extent where it is just about to be cooked. If it is over cooked, the pasta would lose it's shaped and become too mushy. Remove it immediately, drain and wash through cold water so that the cooking is stopped. Drain, add a tsp of oil and keep it aside.
Heat a tbsp of oil in a pan. Fry the chopped onions till transparent and is about to brown. Add tomatoes at this stage. Fry for 2 minutes and then add the pasta. Season with salt and red chilly powder. I like this one slightly spicy. Garnish with basil or cilantro leaves.
Do no add water. Tomatoes and onions cooked in oil and seasoned with red chilli powder/paprika is what renders flavors to this dish. This will be done in minutes. Simple, easy and quick! Fusilli delight is ready to be served hot.

Pasta doesn't require any introduction :) All know that it roots to Italian cooking. However, there are different shapes and names of pasta, although they are all basically made of same ingredients. My previous post spoke of sheet pasta while this one, Fusilli belongs to the spiral types. Fusilli Delight!
