VEGETABLE PASTA

Hi
    Welcome to my recipe book. I was bored to cook. There were some left over pasta . So, I planned to make pasta in an Indianized way . Pasta is an Italian dish and its healthy too. I used Fussili type pasta, and Olive oil to give an Italian touch . Olive oil is good for health and  i prefer mushroom sauce which goes well with pasta. Now, without any further delay let us see our vegetable pasta....



Vegetable pasta

Ingredients:

Pasta -200g (Fussili or any variety of pasta)
Mushroom sauce -150 g (Store bought or any other home made sauce)
Onion - 1 (Medium chopped)
Carrot -1/2 cup
Beans - 1/2 cup
Green,Red,Yellow capsicum -1/2 cup
Mushroom -1/2 cup
Cauliflower -1/2 cup
Olive oil as required
Salt as required
Water as required



 
Hot bowl of vegetable pasta
 Preparation :

The boiling of pasta and the vegetables in sauce preparation should be parallel. This is due to the reason that the boiled pasta should be added to the vegetables and sauce immediately.

Boiling pasta

Take one litre of water for 100 gm of pasta. Boil it well.
Add 10 gm of salt for 100 gm of pasta. Again boil the water.
Now add the pasta. Let it cook well.
Cook the pasta until it become soft and the white strand disappears.
It is not advisable to add oil while cooking pasta because the strands will stick to each other.
Once the pasta is cooked, add a cup of cold water to pasta immediately to prevent further cooking.
Drain the water from pasta.

Vegetable pasta

Heat Olive oil in a pan,add onion and other vegetables.
Add salt and fry the vegetables well and keep aside.
Heat the pan and add sauce and let it cook for five minutes.
Any kind of pasta sauce can be used.(Home made or Store bought)
Now add the cooked vegetables to the sauce and cook well.(for about 3 min)
Add pasta in sauce and saute it well.
Pasta should be added immediately after draining the water.
Now vegetable pasta is ready to serve.

Yummy pasta
Serving suggestion:

Serve pasta with grated cheese on the top.

Have a happy cooking and eating :)
