VEGGIE TUNA PASTA

Veegie Tuna Pasta




OMG! I looked back to my blog and was quite shocked how long its been since i have posted a new recipe..Sigh! ya ya i know.. cant blame always on my lazy part. Last week I got few mails and chats, asking why there are no new recipes. I then relaized I have been very lazy girl and there are many who actually really want to see a recipe. So then i decided i will now onwards i will definitely keep posting recipes :).. You wont believe even my toddler picked and had on her own and was eating it. One way to fool the kids to have the heathier way of good food is to make this! ;)

Ingredients :

Pasta - 1 packet ( a medium one)
Salt
Water
Olive Oil - 1 tsp
Cabbage - 1/4 chopped finely
Capsicum - 1/2 chopped finely
Carrot - 1 chopped finely
Beans - 15 nos chopped finely

For the Tuna :
Tuna (tin) - 2 nos
Onions - 1 large finely chopped
Tomato - 2 medium finely chopped
Green chilli - 1-2 finely chopped
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Black Pepper grounded - 1 tsp
Olive Oil - 1 -2 tsp
Water - 1/4 cup
Salt


Preparation. In a pan add water (add enough water to make all the pasta sunk and running while boiling) and bring to a boil. To it add salt and oil and then pasta. When pasta is cooked drain and keep aside.

I bought tin tuna in water and salt. So drain the water and keep the tuna aside.

In another pan, add a tsp of oil. Once hot, add in onions, ginger garlic paste and saute till onions turn light brown in color. then add in the green chillis and tomatoes and sute till tomatoes are mushy. Then add in tuna and saute till tuna is almost fried. then add a bit of 1/4 water and then add in beans and carrot and cover and cook till they are slightly tender. Then add in the cabbage and capsicum and cook for about a minute. We want that crunchiness in the veggies so dont over cook. Add salt and pepper. Dont add too much salt as tin tuna itself has salt in it.

Next step, we have to mix paste into this mix or vice-versa. Mix and serve warm with ketchup. You can garnish with coriander leaves too :)..

Ladies, if you re so lazy you can omit the veggie and simply make the TUNA PASTA too in the same method :)...

Cheers,
Neetz ;)
