#Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme TRICOLOUR.
India is a diverse Nation with many religions ,cultures and languages. To celebrate
Republic Day, we bloggers have decided to dedicate our 24th Foodie Monday to the theme #Tricolour.My contribution to this theme is Tricolour Pasta. Healthy and yummy .
Pasta comes in various shapes and sizes and serves as a healthy one pot
meal.Kids will just love it. Adjust the spiciness to suit your palates.On the eve
of Republic day, I am sharing recipe for Tri Colour Pasta loaded with the goodness of
Spinach and Carrots. You can add veggies of your choice. There is no cream
added so it is more healthy.
Recipe for Tricolour Pasta:
2 Cups multi coloured shell pasta (Wheat Pasta)
2 Medium Sized onions Chopped
A bunch of Spinach chopped
1 Carrot Julienned
2 Medium sized Potato boiled and mashed
1 Tsp chopped garlic
1 Tsp Sri Racha Sauce
2 Tbsp Pasta Sauce(Prego Brand)
Cheese Optional(To sprinkle before serving)
2 Tsp Oilve Oil
salt to taste
In a large pot of boiling, salted water and a few drops of oil, cook the pasta until
just done, about 10 minutes. Drain the pasta . Add some ice cubes or cold
water so that they do not stick to each other.
Blanch the spinach and keep it aside.
Heat a wok. Drizzle olive oil. Add chopped garlic and onions and fry till they
turn slightly brownish.Then add mashed Potatoes, pasta sauce, sri racha
sauce, blanched spinach and mix. Add the boiled pasta and salt to taste.
Mashed Potatoes give a nice creamy texture to the pasta.You can add chilli
sauce or chilli flakes inn case you do not have Sri Racha sauce.
Garnish with Julienned carrots, cheese and blanched spinach and serve hot!!!
I have given it a desi touch for the Tricolour theme on the eve of Republic day!!!!
