kluski pasta with indian sauce

My little one loves pasta. So I try to make pasta often at home these days. I am not a big fan of oregano or cheese so I end up making pasta with Indian spices. Indo - italian version. We have a new grocery store downtown and they sale variety of home made pasta. I found this Kluski  pasta and wanted to try it. Its a dense egg and wheat noodle.

What you need:
Kluski pasta or any other pasta of your choice
crushed Tomato paste- 2 cups
onions - 1 finely chopped
garlic- 4 cloves finely chopped
carrots- finely chopped
black pepper powder- 1/2 teaspoon
garam masala- 1 teaspoon
red chilly powder- 1 teaspoon
olive oil- 1 table spoon
salt to taste

How to make :
In a big pot of boiling water add pasta and cook according to the packet instructions. In a pan heat oil, add onions, garlic and saute till onions turn transparent. Add the carrots or any vegetable / meat of your choice and saute. Add the tomato paste, garam masala, chilly powder, salt and cook till it turns to sauce consistency. You can add water that the pasta is cooked in, if needed while cooking. the starch in the water give a nice consistency to the sauce. Add the cooked pasta into the sauce and stir it up, sprinkle some freshly ground pepper. you can garnish with cheese or some fresh cilantro.
