Masala pasta

Pasta cooked and coated with a blend of Indian spices. No adding of cheese so it could be a good tea time snack for the entire family. It gives a taste much similar to the Indianised noodles recipe. A splash of tomato sauce on to the pasta as a final touch gives an extra hand to the much needed kids friendly version.
