Veggie Pasta - Angel Hair

This recipe is derived from Adharsh school lunch recipe which I was not expecting much out of it...but turned out good...One another recipe with all the healthy nutrients and better deal for dinner....Kids would love it especially the cheese and angel hair ..


  1. Angel hair whole grain pasta- 8 oz(1/2 pack)

  2. Garlic - 4 cloves

  3. Onion - 1

  4. Green pepper - 1/2

  5. Mixed veggies(beans, carrots, cors, peas, mushrooms, avacados, zucchini etc) - 1 cup

  6. Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp

  7. Pasta sauce(any variety) - 4 tbsp

  8. Cheese - 1 slice/2 tbsp grated cheese

  9. Salt - to taste

  10. Seasoning items
    Olive oil - 2 tsp, Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp


  1. Boil Pasta with water for 10-15 mts(or according to the cooking instructions)

  2. Add salt to taste(1 tsp) while cooking paste

  3. Drain the excess water from pasta and mix it with some olive oil to avoid becoming sticky

  4. Heat oil in a wok and add the seasoning items

  5. Add garlic and green pepper and wait till it smells good

  6. Add onions and fry for few mts.

  7. Now its the best time to add salt to the mixture

  8. Add the mixed veggies(frozen veggies are your better bet, microwave before for 5 mts) and fry for 5 mts

  9. Mix it with pasta sauce and cheese and let it boil for 5 mts. Its good to add a little bit of cheese to this recipe. Just the pasta sauce tastes raw and you will never turn back to this recipe once forever.

  10. Add the mixture to the pasta and mix it thoroughly

    Let it cool for sometime...It also helps blending of pasta with the sauce. ..wait and add up the flavor :)
