Fusilli in Pink sauce

I had to write about this immediately. I made this pasta for the first time today. For lunch. It was just amazing. The dish is so flavoursome and the best things about this recipe are that one has all the ingredients at home and takes just a few minutes to assemble once the white sauce is ready!

The pink sauce is actually made by stirring together white sauce and tomato sauce. Its flavours come from the liberal use of all mixed herbs. The taste is absolutely restaurant-style.

This vegetarian dish is so good, that when I told my hubby (a hardcore non-vegetarian) that I had enough of all ingredients to make this again, he actually said that we should have this for dinner again tomorrow.

Was passing by Dadar and decided to do a pick up dinner.

They have a pretty exhaustive menu for a restaurant their size.

I felt like having pasta for dinner. The person across the counter suggested A la tikka pasta since I wanted something spicy. I agreed – A la tikka – what could that taste like?, I wondered. Hubby ordered a Non-veg club sandwich. Our parcel was ready in 20 mins. and we went home.

Dinner time – The A la tikka pasta was accompanied by 2 herbed breads. What can I say to the taste but – interesting, very interesting. Its a very interesting fusion of an international dish with an absolute Indian flavour. And spicy it was – just the right amount. The pasta has a good amount of paneer and cheese. The herbed breads were good, but they were ‘herbed’ a bit too strongly. Would have been a perfect accompaniment to the pasta if the herbs were sprinkled in lesser quantity. Its a heavy and wholesome meal. At Rs. 225, its absolutely VFM. Would I order it again – yes but would ideally like to try their other dishes first.

The Non-veg club sandwich. Price Rs. 200.

Hubby’s instant reaction on opening the box – its not grilled! Well, we assumed they would grill it or would have asked otherwise what we wanted. So, that was a disappointment. As the wafers are just dunked into the side of the box, which is not air-tight, they were completely wilted and soggy : (

Plus point to this sandwich was the size – the portion size was good. Look below for a picture of a single half of the sandwich.

The taste of the club sandwich was very average. Grilled would have tasted better (even their menu says so). The coleslaw was decent. 

I will definitely try this place out for other options.

I love this pasta. So does hubby and the entire family. Well, it’s also enjoyed by hubby’s office colleagues. What can I say – everyone loves this pasta – everyone has to! Its a pasta rich in tomato flavour and mounds of cheese…slurp….

Its the easiest tomato-based pasta to be made and so its surprising that restaurants don’t serve this! Is it because it is not authentic pasta (do we Indians really eat authentic Chinese food?) or because it has no elaborate technique to make it? So its not on menus because it is simply too simple to make?

Had it for dinner tonight and a hot mug of Mocha coffee. Bliss. All set for a good night sleep.
