First of all, prepare red sauce and boil the pasta. To prepare it, heat the oil in a pan over medium flame and then add minced garlic along with chopped red chili and red chili flakes. 

Saute it for at least 2 minutes and keep it stirring. After that, take another pan, pour the water in it, and boil it. Add pasta and some salt to the boiling water.

Once it’s done, cook tomatoes and herbs for a few minutes. 10 minutes is enough for this. Heat olive oil and add peeled tomatoes, onion, and parsley to the frying pan. Mix all of your ingredients well and let it simmer for 10 or 12 minutes. Cook the mixture until you see the sauce starts to thicken. 

When you see the sauce gaining thickness, turn off the burner and add some salt, then add black pepper powder. Now add the pasta to the warm sauce and toss it carefully. Ensure each piece of pasta is well-coated with the sauce. 

Step 3:

Let the pasta for 2 or 3 minutes and then serve it immediately.
