Pirated Pasta~!

So henceforth, I'm going to randomly describe something easy and quick to cook in a jiffy. Mostly for Bachelors/ spinsters/ Hostellers. When it's too much work to cook for one, or even two! The recipes are going to be v.basic, involving v.little work, and v.little preparation too. You are obviously free to add more vegetables or spices or sauces as you wish. Any ideas or tips or suggestions are most welcome!!

Pirated Pasta :

Ingredients ::

1 packet Macaroni [cheap n easy bambino.]

2 large onions

Basic spices 1 tsp each
- turmeric, chilli powder, garam masala.
Sprinkling of grated/cream cheese.

Method :

Cook macaroni al dente, keep aside.
Heat 2 tsp oil in wok/non stick pan.

Finely dice tomatoes, save the juice. Add to transluscent onions.
Add salt to taste, along with the Basic spices in aforementioned quantities.
Add the powedered soup mix, Add 1 glass of water and mix well, no lumps must be present.
when it starts bubbling, add the soy sauce and tomato ketchup.

Add the now cool macaroni to the hot mixture and mix well, turn off the heat.
Sprinkle with cheese.
