Penne Pasta with Onion, Tomato sauce, Quick Lunch for Kids!

This is another pasta that I recently made for Konda. I didn't want to try the usual way of making the Tomato Macaroni way. In fact this was my first time cooking with Penne pastas. These had such wonderful texture and looked very pretty after being cooked.

The best part unlike Macaronis, these didn't get dry after 4 hours of being cooked. And were quick to make and tasty. What else will I ask for! Only upsetting part for me was I ended up making it little spicy and I was upset until Konda assured me later in the evening that the heat was all gone when she ate it.
