i usually have pasta or macaroni at home which i use to make various pasta recipes on occasions. this veg pasta recipe gets made at home often and is liked by everyone.

as an accompaniment to the pasta, i bake a bread or loaf the previous day and make a side vegetable soup or tomato soup.

tips for making vegetable pasta recipe

  1. you can use your choice of veggies in the pasta. we are fond of peas, baby corn, carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms and potatoes and hence these get often added in the pasta. usually i prefer to include vegetables in the pasta recipes wherever possible. various mix vegetables not only add a lot of flavor and depth to the pasta but also makes it more nutritious.
  2. for the flavors and seasoning, i have added dry basil and oregano. you can add your choice of preferred herbs. if living in india and you don’t have access to dry basil and oregano, then you can add a bit of fresh coriander or mint leaves. don’t add too much, just a tiny amount, about 1 tsp of chopped coriander or mint.
  3. to make this veg pasta recipe you will have to steam or cook the vegetables. either steam them in pot or electric cooker or use a pressure cooker to cook the veggies. peel and dice or cube the veggies. keep aside.
  4. i have not steamed the mushrooms but sauteed them as you will see in the pics below.
  5. in this recipe you don’t have to make the white sauce separately. the white sauce is made in the same pan once the boiled veggies are added. you can also have a look at this white sauce pasta recipe which is made in a different way.
