La Italiana…Pasta Ricetta 1


It’s a rainy day, came home from my dance class in the evening to a lovely wish from Arya – “HIIIIIII, bagunnada” (a south indian style of wishing people, How are you?). I quickly took shower and gave Arya, warm milk mixed with soft n sticky rice with little salt as his dinner (as he is not feeling well with fever above 101F). After he is done, I was thinking to cook something good, easy and quick for the dinner for me and Chaitanya. Then my eyes fallen on the spaghetti. Since Chaitanya is cutting his diet for a healthy living and so I am, I wanted to do more healthy ones to fill our tummy soo yummy.

Come to my kitchen for the Ingredients and recipe, but before that he is picture that I took it from iphone.



Capellini Pasta

Baby Carrots – 1 cup chopped finely                                                                                                                                
Broccoli – 1 cup chopped finely                                                                                                                                          
Spinach – 2 cups chopped finely                                                                                                                                        
Soya granules – 1 cup soaked and drained                                                                                                                    
Cilantro – to garnish                                                                                                                                                                  
Pepper powder – 1 tsp                                                                                                                                                            
Jeera Powder – 1 tsp                                                                                                                                                  
Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tsp                                                                                                                                            
Olive oil                                                                                                                                                                                          


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the Capellini pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally about 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water. Meantime while boiling, take a wide sauce pan, put little olive oil and  add garlic, saute it, then add all the veggies. Cook for 5 minutes until all veggies are tender. Add turmeric powder then Jeera powder and then add drained (softened) Soya granules, stir fry all the veggie ingredients till now for 5 minutes. Finally Add Spaghetti to the above veggie fry and toss with Cilantro.  Toss the pasta with enough reserved cooking water to moisten. Season with Salt and pepper and mix well. Transfer to the serving dish and Enjoy your meal 🙂
