Italian Pasta Recipes

When you think of Italian food, one of the things in your mind and that is Pasta. Pasta is a staple of the Italian diet. Pasta can be used everyday for a year without repeating a dish. Home-made pasta sauce is so easy.


Elbow macaroni 200 grams

Brocli 250 grams

Grated Mozzarella Cheese 1/2cup

Ricotta cheese 1/2 cup

Olive oil 1 tsp

2 garlic cloves, crushed

Tomato puree a quarter cup

Pepper powder 1 tsp

Salt to taste

Origeno Leaves dry 1 tsp

Chili flakes for garnishing

For cooking Macaroni:

Water 4 cups

Salt 1 tsp

Oil 1 tbs


Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the penne and olive oil and cook until just tender, but still firm to the bite.

Drain the pasta, set aside, and keep warm. Cook, rinse, and drain pasta. Be sure your macaroni noodles have cooled completely before setting out to make. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add olive oil. When the oil will hot, add the garlic and chilli and fry lightly until it will crackle.

After a few seconds, add the sliced brocli and tomatoes.  Then add salt and pepper.  Cook for 5 minutes stirring frequently. Add dry Origeno Leaves on top. Toss until all the ingredients are coated.

Sprinkle the Origeno leaves on top. Cover with the macaroni and then spoon over the ricotta cheese mixture.

Bake in a preheated oven at 375F for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown and the cheese topping is bubbling.

Garnish with basil leaves, if desired, and serve hot.

Don’t rinse the pasta before adding it either to the plate, or to the sauce.
