  1. As I suggested earlier, homemade pasta sauce is important to give a healthy twist to this yummy recipe. Make a homemade sauce and use it later whenever you are making pizza or pasta.
  2. First of all, take a pan, add water and bring it to boil. Add pasta to the boiling water. Add salt and oil in the water. Once it’s done, drain it out.
  3. To cook red sauce pasta, take another pan and add few drops of olive oil. Add tomato puree and cook for some time.
  4. Add homemade sauce along with some salt and pepper.
  5. You can add boiled or sautéed vegetables at this point in this sauce to get cooked in the sauce for some time.
  6. When veggies are cooked and the sauce gets little thick add grated cheese to the sauce.
  7. Cook for 5 more minutes and add some parsley, oregano and chilli flakes once it’s cooked.
  8. Add boiled pasta to the veggies and sauce mixture. Mix it nicely and cook for 5 minutes.
  9. Add grated cheese and some fresh parsley on the top. Serve it or give it in the lunch box with homemade Garlic bread.
You can make a lot of variations in this recipe according to your kid's taste and preferences. Another combination is a mixture of both red and white sauce. You can add little more cheese or cream, in the end, to give it another twist.
