Notes

  1. You can also make this dish by roasting onions and tomatoes in the oven until they start turning brown. It gives a very nice smoky flavor to the pasta.
  2. If you prefer simpler flavors, skip mushrooms and spinach. It will still taste awesome.
  3. You can also use fresh basil leaves in this recipe.
  4. To fasten the process of cooking tomatoes, cut them in half. 
  5. Always reserve some pasta water (water left after draining cooked pasta) while making any pasta dish.  Add a few spoons of this water if you feel that the pasta sauce is too dry and not getting evenly coated on pasta.
