  • ½ teaspoon salt or as needed
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ginger garlic paste

  • 1 teaspoon oregano powder

For Topping


  • Cook the pasta using salt and water in a large pan, follow the package instructions for cooking time which is usually about 10 or 12 minutes, drain the cooked pasta and keep aside.
  • You can add a little oil and toss the cooked pasta shells, which will prevent the shells from getting stick to each other.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the marinara sauce.
  • Add all the spices and mix well.
  • Cook in low heat for about 2 to 3 minutes at least until the spices are all well blended with the sauce.
  • You can even cook more time till the oil starts to separate which will make the sauce more delicious.
  • Once the sauce is well combined with the exotic spices, pour the sauce over the cooked pasta and toss well until well combined. Alternatively, you can simply serve the cooked pasta in a plate topped with spoonfuls of prepared sauce (you can use as much sauce as you like).


Serve the delicious pasta with sauce topped with roasted cauliflower florets or you can mix in the roasted cauliflower florets with the pasta and sauce if you like it that way.
