Indianised Pazzta with Sautéed Vegetables

Average Indian of my generation are brought up with an attraction of 2 Min treat. Yeah, guessed it right our very own Maggi Noodles! I guess for most of us this must be the first try in kitchen.  From then to lazy dinners today, Maggi has been with us :D  IMG_3601

Infact this Nestle brand also gave loads of other new products for our kitchen; from soups to spices to ketchups to PAZZTAS. So when Jyoti announced her Pasta event, I thought of giving the Maggi Pasta a try.And to go with the Masala Penne Pasta I prepared Sautéed vegetables Italian cum Indian style ;) IMG_3608

The preparation of this Maggi Pasta is very similar to the regular Maggi Noodles. These steps must be by-heart to my generation. For two packs of Maggi Pasta pack we do:

  1. Boil  about 3 glasses of water.
  2. Add the Penne Pasta along with the Tastemaker – Spice along with the pack.
  3. Cover and cook on medium flame till pasta is cooked. About 5 Mins :) IMG_3603

Done !! I added green peas in Step 2, you can add other veggies in accordance with the taste.

Sauted Vegetables :

You Need:

  • Sliced Vegetables of your choice : about 2 cups : I used Carrot, Cabbage, French Beans, Capsicum and CauliflowerIMG_3602
  • Green chilies: 2
  • Virgin Olive Oil or Butter
  • Oregano: 3-4 tbsp
  • Red Chili Flakes: 3-4 tbsp
  • Crushed Black Pepper: 2 tsp
  • Grated Cheese
  • Salt to taste

You Do:

  1. Parboil vegetables like Cauliflower and French beans till they are a bit soft.
  2. Heat the oil or butter in the non-stick pan. Add green chilies.
  3. Once the splutter add all the veggies. Toss them in the butter.
  4. Mix Oregano, chili flakes, pepper along with salt.IMG_3604
  5. Cover and cook for couple of minutes.
  6. Once the vegetables seem cooked cover it with grated cheese and cover for couple of minutes.

Adjust the spices as per taste. Serve hot along with Pasta. Garlic Bread and Soup also goes well along with this. IMG_3609

  14. great way to eat veggies..and it looks sooo tempting! thanks for the recipe

  15. Great recipe. Delicious and simple. I used the olive oil to make the dish a little healthier, added chopped garlic along with the chillies, and popped in the capsicum at the very last minute once the other veggies were cooked through, to retain crunch. Also added half-a-tablespoon of sugar while frying, which nicely balanced out the savoury cheese, and caramelised the veggies.

    Fantastic recipe to add some variations, will definitely try this again. Thanks!
