Desi Macaroni

The Equation: Macaroni + Cheese + Indian/Asian flavor


Comment: Don't be afraid of the ketchup.

½ tsp. chili flakes
½ cup mozzarella or grated parmesan

Add cilantro, vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, and tomato paste. Mix well. Then add cooked macaroni to the skilled. Mixing thoroughly so that all macaroni gets a bit of “sauce”. Transfer macaroni to oven safe dish, then spring cheese on top. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes, until cheese melts.

Looks very tasty. I end up deifying my pasta as well, as my son loves food that have some spices. I usually add pav bhaji masala to the pasta. try it , it tastes great. BTW, my son is 3 yrs old :).
