Whole Wheat Pasta (Penne or Fussili)
Olive Oil
Finely chopped Garlic
Chopped Capsicum
Sweet corn kernels (steamed)
Finely Chopped Tomato
Mushrooms (optional)
Asparagus (optional)
Chopped spinach (optional)
Black pepper

Put 1.5 cups pasta in 3 cups water, sprinkle some salt and add one table spoon olive oil. Bring to boil. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Check the pasta and once it is cooked, strain the excess water and run cold water over the pasta.

In a pan take one teaspoon olive oil, add garlic and sauté. Add parsley, basil, chives, freshly ground black pepper and sauté for a few seconds. Add the veggies to the pan, if you are using all the veggies mentioned above please add in this sequence giving about 1 minute between each addition – Asparagus, Capsicum, Mushrooms, Corn Boiled), Tomatoes and then Spinach, strir fry these veggies for some time. Add salt to taste.

Mix the pasta with these veggies, add extra virgin olive oil to the mixture. And it is ready to serve :D.

You can be creative and add your own choice of veggies. Enjoy!
