Mexican One-pot Fajita Pasta ❤️


Pasta for 2 people (any spaghetti pasta)

2 medium tomatoes

1 medium to large red onion thinly sliced

1 capsicum thinly sliced 

7-8 button mushroom sliced

10-15 black olives cut into two

9-10 cloves of garlic roughly chopped

8 Basil leaves

6-7 Cilantro twigs (just break them into 2-3 ” pieces with hands) 

3 tbsp olive oil

3 tbsp grated cheese (parmesan/Mozzarella) 

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp dried chilli flakes

1tsp red pasta sauce (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste

2 + 2 cups water 


Blanch tomatoes in approx 2 cups water. Blanch thoroughly till the skin comes off. The water will turn tomato-ish, we need that water later. Dispose the skin. If you want you can roughly chop the tomatoes.
In a large vessel (heavy bottomed preferably) combine everything including the tomato water but leave out the cheese. Cook with lid on medium flame. Keep stirring every 2-3 mins. Add cheese when the sauce is visibly reduced. Stir and cover. It’ll take approx. 10-15 mins for everything to cook. 

PS: My kitchen smelled like a fresh garden. This was such a quick, hassle-free and delicious meal! Do Try! Total time from start to finish was only 25mins!
