Spiral Pasta with Veggies

Spiral Pasta with Veggies
Hi Friends,
I am here again with one more pasta recipe. It came out delicious. I wanted to make it more healthy so i added paneer cubes, capsicum, carrot in it. These days my husband in love with coriander and Corns so i also added them. Even i made especially Coriander Rice for him. which came out perfect to go with any side dish. I am desperately waiting to try my hands on White Pasta Sauce. But for the timing i am trying my hands on different flavors, pasta and veggies.  So friends try it and let me know the outcome.

  1. Don't overcook veggies, just saute them for few seconds.
  2. Add any of your favorite veggie in it. For me all these veggies were just perfect.
  3. If you don't like raw paneer then you can fry or shallow fry before adding to pasta.
  4. Don't skip corn, it added so much flavor in pasta.
