Vegetable Pasta

I love Pasta, nothing new right..every one loves pasta :) During my childhood my naani and mom used to make home made semiya during summer season( I want to learn how to make them). Once sun dried mom used to prepare either milk based semiyan or vegetable semiya. After growing up and coming to a cosmopolitan city I found  Pasta in grocery shop shelves and this reminded how everything was once handmade and is now so much commercialized. Long chat for some other time.

My son loves Pasta but only boiled pasta with just salt, little oil n minimal spices. He is not a vegetable lover and I am struggling to include veggies in his diet. But B and me both loves veggies, so it was Vegetable pasta for dinner tonight. Personally I love white sauce creamy pasta ,but that becomes too heavy on tummy. And to keep my weight under check I have gradually switched to simple pasta just with veggies and some Italian spices. This one has mushroom, carrots,onion,green bell pepper,spinach,garlic, which got filtered into my plate as little hero doesn't like them.

  • 1 cup boiled pasta
  • 1 medium carrot chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 cup chopped bell peppers
  • 1 cup spinach.. do not chop
  • 1 cup chopped mushroom
  • 2 tsp oil
  • Garlic powder or use fresh garlic
  • Pepper powder
  • Salt as per taste
Steps :

1. Heat oil in pan.
2. saute onion and mushroom. Let mushroom water gets dried up
3. Add spinach and carrot and again saute for sometime. Spinach will leave water , so let it get dried up
4. Add bell peppers, salt ,garlic powder and pepper powder and saute for 3-5 mins. We liek chunky Capsicum.
5.Add Italian Spice, dried basil, Oregano, Chilly flakes, salt, pepper, garlic powder and mix well.
5. Add boiled pasta and mix well.
6.add grated cheese if you like.
7. Serve hot

Hope you like it as much B and I did.
