Simple Pasta

Since it was just me and hubby at home for dinner, I decided to make pasta. Simple and quick, not too many ingredients though. Hubby just doesn't like the sweetness of tomatoes, so I couldn't make any red sauce, and was too tired to make white sauce. So, just make it like a Pulao :)

200 gms packet of pasta - boiled and kept aside

Grated cheese (for garnishing)

1 large capsicum (sliced)

1 large carrot (sliced)

2 onions (sliced) - I used white onions here

1 tsp ginger garlic paste

1/2 tsp red chilli powder

1 tsp oregano powder

Salt to taste

Olive oil to cook

Heat oil in a pan, and add the ginger garlic paste. Once the aroma starts coming, add onions and cook until transparent. Add the remaining veggies and all the other ingredients (except pasta), and cover and cook until the veggies are done to your liking. I keep it semi done, for the slight crispiness.

Then add the pasta, stir well, cover and cook for 2 mins.

While serving, I garnished the pasta with lots of grated cheese and heated in the microwave for 1/2 a minute. This really made up for the lack of sauce in the pasta!
