Pasta Vegetable Soup

Once again a pasta dish! Lil Angel is head over heels in love with pastas and I find it easier to get her to eat if there is pasta in the dish that she normally refuses. Of late,she detests soups except her favorite drumstick soup, so I am finding ways and means to get her to take in vegetables and this soup serves two purposes. It has veggies and is filling!

Recently I  experimented and found out that pasta can be cooked in the pressure cooker. I have been following this method ever since. Pasta dishes get done in a jiffy!

I used:

Whole wheat pasta-1/2 cup
Mixed vegetables- 1/2 cup [I used potato,peas,beans and carrots,onion,a few slices of garlic]
Corn flour-1 teaspoon
Oregano-1/2 teaspoon
Red chili flakes- 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste

  1. Pressure cook the pasta with 1 1/2 cups water. In another separator vessel,put in the chopped veggies and add a little water.Pressure cook for 2 hisses.
  2. Once the pressure releases, drain the water from the pasta and rinse under cold water. Keep aside.
  3. Heat the vegetable along with the water used to cook it.
  4. Add the pasta, salt,oregano and some water to get the desired consistency.
  5. Dissolve the corn flour in a little water and add to the pan.
  6. Stir well and let it simmer for a few minutes.
  7. Remove from heat and serve garnished with chili flakes.

Note :

This goes to Pavani's event- 5 ingredient fix, which she is hosting this month in Srivalli's Kid's Delight event.She has given salt/sugar, chili powder/pepper powder, oil/butter as freebies and this dish which uses very few ingredients seems apt for her event.
