Pasta Pizza ~ an interesting Italian fusion!

Nov 18, 2012         15 comments.

I have never been a big fan of Pasta. And then I made Marinara sauce at home. That entirely changed my opinion of Pasta! Honestly, if I were just boiling some Pasta and mixing with a ready to eat taste-maker provided with the pasta, how would it be good? I devoured a bowl of Pasta with my homemade Marinara sauce. So my statement stands corrected : I don’t like any Pasta. I only like pasta with a good sauce to complement it. πŸ™‚ And then.. an idea struck. I love Pizzas. And now, I’m beginning to love Pasta too. Why not just marry the two?!

And that is exactly what I did. I mixed pasta with the marinara sauce, added it to the pizza base, added some extra vegetables for the crunch, some cheese for the gooeyness and grilled it! This is 5 minutes to heaven y’all! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ You can make or buy Marinara sauce. (or use any pasta sauce, really) And the sauce stays well in the refrigerator. So it only takes under 5 minutes to put this dish together. πŸ™‚ And it is a fun dish! To bite into the pizza and be surprised with not the usual veggies is something I loved seeing on Mr. 23 inch waist’s face! πŸ˜€

PASTA PIZZA

Ingredients
1 medium pizza base
1/2 cup cooked pasta
1/2 cup marinara sauce (or any sauce you like)
1/4 cup sliced Onions & Capsicum
Cheese
Organo / Chilli flakes

Method
1. Mix the pasta with the sauce

2. Add the pasta to the base. (no need to butter it) Sprinkle oregano & chilli flakes if you like.

3. Add the onions & capsicum for the crunch

4. Grate cheese all over the top as much as you like!

5. You can either bake it at 180 C for 15 minutes.

OR > Microwave it for 2 minutes & grill for 2 minutes. It tastes wonderful this way too!

Notes:

  1. Don’t add too much pasta or a lot of vegetables. Add only as much as the base can take.
  2. Use any left over sauce
  3. Season it with as much oregano / chilli flakes as you like.

  2. This is a fun way of using leftover pasta and veggies. Nothing like homemade Marinara sauce. Looks tempting and delicious. Browsed through your other recipes, and love them, as well. Will have to try your eggless mango ice cream…yumm!
