Cheesy tomato pasta recipe | Desi cheese pasta – Creamy cheesy pasta recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

An easy kid’s friendly pasta recipe with a homemade tomato-based sauce. This cheesy pasta recipe is made using easily available ingredients at home. We are not using oregano or any other Italian seasoning for this recipe. We are using garam masala and it turned out yum. Kids loved this and it is a super hit at home.

We are using tomato and garlic to make the pasta sauce. The addition of chopped garlic, garam masala, red chili powder, and cheese enhances the taste of the cheesy pasta. Usually, I make pasta using store-bought pasta sauce or homemade pasta sauce. I found this very easy and interesting and ready in 30 minutes.
