Now add salt,black pepper powder and crushed red chilies along with 1/4 cup of water to cook the onions. Stir this around for a few minutes over medium heat until onions become soft. Then add in mixed Italian herbs,tomato puree and white pepper. Mix it all together Now add to it Pizza Sauce,mix it around for a moment and bring to a light boil.Lower the heat to simmer while you do the rest of the preps!
Prepare Pasta: Get a pot of water boiling, add 1 tsp salt and pasta and let cook until it's done. Drain it and add a tsp of oil, give it a mix. While the pasta is boiling, grate the cheese
By this point the sauce should be done, so turn off the heat. Do a taste check and adjust seasonings according to taste. Add pasta to the prepared meat sauce and mix well so that its all well coated
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take out the pasta in an oven-proof dish and top it with grated cheese. Bake till the cheese melts. Serve hot to enjoy stretchy Mozzarella Cheese threads
