Pasta in Vegetable & Tomato Sauce

Pasta, this word itself makes my kids happy, they love it to core and they can survive for many days with just pasta spiced with pepper powder and butter.Obviously after rice, pastas have their important place in our weekly menu. I'll try to make pasta atleast twice or thrice a week, as they are very easy to cook and you can make varieties of dishes out of them. We never get bored of eating pastas,eventhough in earlier days i wasnt a big fan of pastas. But now because of busy schedule, my cooking goes for easy peasy dishes and hence pastas have became an obligation for me to carry in my lunch box. Now i can live just with pastas for many days. Today's recipe is one of the quickest and easiest pasta dish to dish out with simple ingredients. Just some chopped vegetables and tomato puree makes this fantastic dish.

Creamy pasta in vegetable & tomato sauce

Kids can carry very well this vegetable loaded pasta in their lunch box. I have choppd the vegetables as small pieces, if your kid dont like vegetables this way, just grate the vegetables and add them, they cant remove and throw it. To make this pasta more creamy and delicious, i have added low fat cream and the addition of cream makes this pasta dish more interesting. Am running last week of blogging marathon with a kid's friendly theme, yes the theme for this week is Kid's delight - Pastas & Pizzas.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#46.
