Vegetable Pasta

Whenever I want to have a change from the usual tiffin varieties,I prepare this easy and tasty pasta with vegetables.By the time the pasta is cooking you can cut the vegetables and saute them.Once the pasta is done the dish gets ready within 5 minutes.

Easy Vegetable Pasta

Ingredients:

Pasta
1 cup
Onion
1
Garlic finely chopped
1 tsp
Capsicum
1
Frozen peas
¼ cup
Pasta sauce
2-3 tblsp
Olive oil
2 tblsp
Salt
as needed
Chilli powder

Method:

Vegetables and sauce getting ready

Pasta with vegetables

  • Cook Pasta in water with little salt and a dash of olive oil till aldente.The pasta should be cooked well yet firm enough to bite.
  • Drain it in a colander and rinse with water once.Apply 1 tblsp olive oil,cover and keep side.
  • Cut onion,capsicum into thin strips.If you are using frozen peas cook it separately in little water and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan,add finely chopped garlic followed by onion and fry well.Add the capsicum and fry till its cooked.
  • Now add the peas,pasta sauce,chilli powder and salt and fry for a minute.Add the cooked pasta and mix it well with the sauce and vegetable mixture.Cook in low flame for 2 mins and serve hot.
Note:
  • Once the pasta is cooked,rinse it once and apply oil so that the pasta doesn't dry out and also no need to add more oil when adding it to the sauce.
  • Pasta sauce gives a nice taste to the dish and I prefer adding it but you can try substituting with little tomato sauce too.
  • I have not added cheese in this recipe.You can add little grated cheese after adding the cooked pasta to the vegetables and cook till the cheese is melted and serve.
