2 cup Macroni pasta
2 medium sized chopped onion
1 medium sized chopped capsicum
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Red chilli flakes

Ingredients for home made pasta/pizza sauce :

3-4 medium sized tomatoes
1 tbsp cooking oil
2 tsp finely chopped garlic
1 medium sized finely chopped onion
1 tsp oregano flakes
1 tsp red chilli flakes

Ingredients for herb garlic bread rolls :

1 cup all purpose flour/maida

1 tsp sugar
Salt to taste
1 tbsp finely chopped garlic'
1 tbsp mixed dried herbs
4-5 tbsp oil + for brushing baking tray
1 tbsp melted butter for brushing rolls
Milk as required (around 100 ml)

Method : First we will prepare dough of garlic bread rolls , for this take 2 tbsp of warm milk not too hot and put dry active yeast and sugar in it , mix well and let it rest for 10 mins ..u will see frothy bubbles on milk this shows yeast is activated take a bowl put all purpose flour in it and add yeast mixture to it and mix well , knead the dough with your hands , add remaining milk and u need a soft dough like used for chapatis..keep on kneading till all dough come together .

On stretching the dough it will break,knead it till it won't break on stretching say about 6-7 mins , now shape it in form of ball and cover it and keep in warm place for min of 2 hrs or till it double in volume. After 2 hrs take out from warm place and knock it with hands to remove all air inside dough and flatten it and add salt ,chopped garlic ,herbs and oil and knead till all flavours are incorporated inside it.

Now shape them in desired shapes like knots, rolls and keep them in baking tray (greased with oil ) covered with clean kitchen towel for min 30 mins for second proofing/rise.

Meanwhile preheat microwave at 180 degree for 10 mins at convection mode and now apply some milk on rolls and bake it at 180 degree for about 20-25 mins , mine took 30 mins to get light brown color. Take them out once done and brush them with melted butter to get shiny look on your freshly baked rolls...let them cool down for 10 mins ..serve them with pasta /salad or eat as such..

Now in the meantime , we will prepare pizza sauce first put criss cross on all tomatoes on bottom side and put them in boiling water for say 3-4 mins this leads to blanching of tomatoes ,take them out once done , let them cool down than peel them and grind them in mixer grinder..Take oil in pan , heat it and add chopped garlic cloves , roast them , add chopped onions , once onion becomes transparent in color add grinded tomatoes puree and cook till sauce starts this stage add tomato ketchup ,oregano and chilli flakes , mix well let it cook for 2-3 mins more and its done ,switch off flame and add salt and sugar and give final mix.Keep it aside for cooling down.

Lets start preparing pasta , boil it in boiling water till it is half done and strain it and keep aside by applying little oil on it.Heat oil in pan , add chopped onions and saute till it becomes transparent in color , add capsicum and cook on high flame for 2-3 mins , add boiled macaroni pasta , prepared pasta sauce and seasonings and salt, mix well , cook for 1-2 mins and switch off flame.
