In India vegetables are used a lot and cooked with various methods and every home has its own unique recipes to make vegetables more interesting and tasty. Apart from regular leafy vegetables I also like yellow and red bell peppers, zucchini and mushrooms and so today I thought of experimenting with these veggies. With love for pasta growing, I made a ‘Healthy Pasta in Vegetable Sauce’ and used all the above mentioned vegetables with some penne pasta for dinner. I used very light oil and boiled pasta, so I could easily say that it was a real healthy dish to have. Use this recipe to make Healthy Pasta in Vegetable Sauce and enjoy with your family.
