Herb Pasta

Usuallly i dont make pasta at home..somehow i dont like the taste when I do it at home. I love the pasta they make in the restaurents.

One day i was googling and i got this recipe from tarla dalal. Then I made up my mind fully to prepare this for evening dinner. I made it and it was simply superb taste. The combination of panner & pasta and adding herbs which is not too much spicy. Its quite simple because not too much ingredients needed and my son loved it. Try it at home if you have kids they will like this definitely.
