Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken Sausage

Italian food has been my all time favorite unlike my husband who prefers "shudh desi" food. While it's his preference that gets priority in the kitchen most of the time, but there are days when you like to give yourself some priority too. So here is a simple and easy-to-make pasta recipe to satisfy your Italian taste buds. 

1 pkt angel hair pasta (spaghetti)
2 tsp crushed garlic
1 medium onion, finely sliced
1 red bell pepper, finely sliced
1 cup sliced white button mushrooms
1 tsp red chilli flakes (you can adjust as per your taste)
2 tsp oregano
1 1/2 tsp parsley
2+1 tbsp olive oil
2 pieces chicken sausage (plain or any other flavor), sliced 
2 tbsp tomato puree
Salt as per taste

Boil 1 litre water and add the pasta. Cook as per the instructions on the pack. Once done, drain the pasta through cold water and toss 1 tbsp oil to avoid sticking.
In a pan, heat the remaining olive oil. Add the crushed garlic and onion. Fry for sometime till it changes color. Next, add the bell pepper, sliced sausages, and mushrooms and keep stirring in between. Simmer the gas and let the pepper and mushroom soften. Ensure that the pepper is not fully cooked and retains a slight crunch. Tip in the tomato puree, red chilli flakes, oregano, and salt. Mix everything well. Now add the pasta and give it a good stir so that the sauce coats the pasta well. Lastly, add the parsley and check for seasoning. Remove from heat and serve. You can add some grated cheese for garnishing, if you prefer. I gave it a miss to keep it low calorie.
