Spaghetti With Semi-homemade Spicy Tomato Sauce
Simple hacks to store bought spaghetti sauce makes this a sublime, satisfying meal. I had this first at a Telugu friend's place - she tweaked a storebought ragu sauce with some Indian spices, and chili powder and I loved it. As a new immigrant who wasn't used to eating sweetish tomato sauce with pasta, this made it very palatable. Not just palatable, but it became a family favorite, when I added some vegetables - fresh carrots, spinach, broccoli... Try it! It comes in handy on those busy nights, but you won't feel guilty about opening a jar of store bought sauce.
