Vegetable & Chicken Pasta
Vegetable and chicken pasta makes me hungry now. I usually cook vegetable pasta and one fine day, I had some left over chicken pieces and I thought let me try mixing them as well. This turned out to be very yummy as well as filling. This recipe is healthy as well as heavy even if you have just one serving.
Vegetables of your choice, below are the ones, I use
Chicken (cut into small pieces)
2 garlic cloves
2 green chilly
sliced almond pieces
2-3 tbsp oil
mirchi powder (accordingly)
1.Firstly, get the pasta done! The crucial step to have your pasta dish ready is when you have the pasta cooked in the right levels. For this, take a shallow vessel, add water, should be a lot and boil it for 10 minutes. After which, add the pasta and keep stirring so that it doesn't stick. After 15 minutes, pick one of the pasta and check if its cooked, check this from time to time and after you think its completely cooked, filter it from water and keep it aside.
2. Now, take a large pan, add 2-3 tbsp of oil and after it is heated add the finely chopped garlic and sliced almonds. This gives an awesome aroma. Add the green chilly and chopped onion.
3.After the onion is fried, add the chopped tomato, you could even add the garlic-tomato pasta sauce instead of all this. Now, add finely chopped cabbage, carrot and all other vegetables of your choice.
4.After all the vegetables are fried, add the chicken to this. Add the butter now and fry everything for about 10 minutes. Add salt, pepper and mirchi powder accordingly.
5.Finally, after the vegetables and chicken is done, add the pasta and mix everything together. You can include cheese or any other sauce of your choice and add some lime juice and enjoy this yummy dish.
