I found this recipe somewhere on the internet and modified it a little bit to suit our tastes. It does not involve a lot of preparation time and can be a good and healthy option for lunch or dinner. Any type of pasta can be used. I even tried it with whole wheat pasta and it tastes amazing.
Unboiled Pasta (any type) : 4 cups
Cut vegetables (carrots, beans, corn, peas) – 1 cup
Onion(diced) – 1/2
oil -1 tbsp
salt as required
green chillies – 3 or 4
pasta sauce – 10 tbsp (adjust this quantity as per your taste)
lemon juice – 3 – 4 tbsp
Cheese – 3 tbsp per serving
Heat water in a large vessel and bring it to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and 2 drops of oil to the water. Add the pasta and cook until tender. drain all the water and add some cold water to the pasta so that it doesn’t get dried up.
Add oil to a wok and add onions and cut green chillies when the oil is hot. Fry the onions until tender. Add all the cut vegetables. Add salt and let the vegetables cook. Then add the pasta sauce and cook for five minutes. Add some lemon juice and cook for two minutes. Now add the boiled pasta and mix it well with the vegetables. Add some coriander leaves if you like.
Just before serving, sprinkle some cheese on top.
