Making tomato pasta in microwave (3 ingredients)

What to eat for lunch? That’s one question I often ask myself . As food sold out there isn’t appealing enough for me or my purse, I decided to make my own lunch. Here’s a simple recipe I had whipped up in office one day: simple tomato pasta.tomato pasta

I find this perfect for lunch or dinner. All you need are 3 ingredients and a microwave!

Pasta x 1 cup
Pasta sauce in a bottle (I’m using Prego Mushroom & Green Pepper) x 3 tablespoon
Fresh Cherry Tomatoes, halved x 1/2 cup
Water x 1 1/2 cup

Egg x (For poached egg. Optional)
Vinegar x (For poached egg. Optional)


  1. Fill the bowl with your desired amount of pasta. Add in enough water to completely cover the pasta.
  2. Microwave the bowl for about 5 minutes (The time may vary depending on your microwave settings. Mine was on HIGH).
  3. Remove the bowl from the microwave every 2 minute or so to stir it a little before placing it back in the microwave.
  4. Once your pasta is cooked, add in the bottled pasta sauce and cherry tomatoes. Stir the contents for the sauce to coat the pasta thoroughly.
  5. Microwave your concoction for about 1.5 minutes to ‘blend in’ the sauce with the pasta (this is optional).
  6. Remove bowl from microwave and enjoy.
  7. To complete the meal, top it with a microwaved poached egg.poached egg

And you’re done! All that is left to do would be to tuck in and enjoy your bowl of pasta!
