Vegetable Pasta

I love Pasta! but I have posted just one Pasta recipe in these 8 months since I started blogging. I will try to post more pasta recipes in the future. Now, I have made a vegetable pasta recipe to start with.

Basic Information:

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 minutes + 20 minutes for cooking pasta

Serves: 3

Ingredients:

For Pasta:

Uncooked fusilli Pasta – 1 and 1/2 cup

Onion – 1 no, small size, finely sliced

Carrot – 1no, medium size, sliced

Capsicum/Bell pepper – 1 no, any colour, cubed

Eggplant – 1 no, small size, cubed

Potato – 1 no, small size, cubed

Salt – to taste

Black pepper – 1 teaspoon

Olive Oil – 1 tablespoon

For Sauce:

Milk – 1/2 cup

Cream cheese/Soft cheese – 1/4cup -1/2 cup

Dry herbs – 1 teaspoon (oregano, thyme)

Method:

1) Cook pasta as per instructions given in the pack. I cook it by adding water with a teaspoon of oil for 20 minutes in microwave. The time differs depending on your microwave and type of pasta.

2) Once it is cooked, drain the excess water. Keep it aside.

3) Take a pan and heat oil in it. Add onion and saute it well.

4) Add vegetables and salt. Sprinkle little water. Cover and cook it for 3-5 minutes, until soft. Make sure not to overcook the vegetables.

5) While the vegetables are cooking, prepare the sauce for pasta.

6) Heat milk in a saucepan. Add cream cheese. Stir it well to avoid any lumps and continue stirring till you get a creamy texture.

7) Reduce the flame and add dried herbs. Mix well. Let the sauce be in low flame.

8) Now, check the vegetables. If they are done, add the sauce followed by pasta and mix it well on high flame just for a minute.

9) Sprinkle black pepper to taste and mix well.

10) Garnish with mint leaves and serve hot.

Note:

1) Add vegetables as per your choice.

2) I used less milk and cream cheese as per my family taste. It is absolutely your choice, to adjust the milk and cream cheese. Add more to get more creaminess in the pasta.

3) If you don’t have cream cheese, use only milk. I have prepared many times only with milk and sometimes substituted with single/heavycream. Still it tasted good.
