Pasta - Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce

Pasta is my Son's favorite. I added some greens , If your kid does not like greens, you can skip greens and add Carrot strips (Peel carrot into strips using Peeler). The collard greens used here gave a good crunch to the dish.

Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce
100 to 150 grms or 1/4 Lb Whole wheat Spaghetti
3 Tomatoes
Handful Collard Greens or any other Greens
Handful of Green Peas
3 Garlic Cloves
2 Tbsp Chopped Onion
1 Cheese Slice
1 1/2  Tbsp Olive Oil
1/4 Tsp Black Pepper or  taste
Salt to taste
2 Cups of water

Chop Garlic into tiny bits. Chop tomato's into small pieces.

Take a deep dish , Put Oil and add chopped Garlic and onion,Saute a little. Add Collard Greens and Peas. Saute a little. Add chopped tomatoes.Add Black Pepper and salt. Cook for 2 minutes.

Add water and add spaghetti to the dish. Just keep sliding the spaghetti into the dish (The bottom ends will become soft and will slide ) until it is fully immersed into water. Cook till the spaghetti is well done. (Follow the cooking time instructions of the spaghetti on the package).  Add cheese slice, Let it melt and serve.

Note : If you are used to boiling Spaghetti separately, you can boil and then add them to the dish once tomatoes are cooked. I boil spaghetti along with the sauce to make it easy.
