I love Italian food and hence find ways to enjoy the rich Italiano flavour with fewer calories at home over a restaurant meal.This weekend I tried my hand at teaching my husband Rohan in making a delicious healthy Penne Pasta!
Here's how to begin...
Saute (your choice of veggies) spinach,spring onions,carrots,bell peppers,broccoli florets (all chopped as per liking,I used finely chopped spinach and spring onions along with squared peppers and diced carrots) into the microwave for 4-5 minutes.There is no restriction on the quantity of veggies!
We love a tomato based sauce over the white one,so added a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes into the sauteed veggies along with oregano seasoning,black pepper,coriander,parsley,rosemary,garlic powder.Microwave this after stirring well for 2-3 minutes.Voila,the sauce with the veggies is already ready!!
Boil the (wheat option please) penne (1cup,any of your choice of pasta is fine),drain into an oiled colander once al dante! Mix the sauce and Penne together,add 2 tbsp cheese and microwave for a minute.Yummylicious Penne Pasta is ready to be served on your very own table next to your loved ones and favourite weekend show on the idiot box!!!
Enjoy the feast!
