Colors play a very important place at home,especially in food and that is very obvious in Lil Dude's food choices.A cheesy pasta has been on my mind for a a very long time and made it one weekend. Lil Dude took one look at his plate and said he did not want to eat! On the other hand Lil Angel tucked in his portion too!
So I asked him if he wanted something else or he would like to have rice with green gram sambar. The Lil one happily settled for the second option!It is also interesting to note that he loves curd rice which is also white but said no to the same white colored pasta! Guess he has his own reasons....
And this creamy pasta is my third post for Blogging Marathon #46, week 2, Day 3 under the theme - Pasta/ pizza/ noodles for kids.
Pasta - 200 grams
Onion-1, finely chopped
Bell peppers cut into strips
Carrot -cut into thin strips
Corn flour-2 tablespoons
Grated cheese- 1/2 cup
Pepper powder-1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Heat a large pan with plenty of water. Add a teaspoon of salt and oil
and bring to boil. Put in the pasta and cook till just done [al
dente].Remove from pan.
Rinse with cold water, drain and
spread on a plate. Leave aside.
Whisk cornflour into the milk without any lumps and keep aside
Heat oil in a pan and add the onion and saute till the onion is soft. Add the bell pepper and carrot and cook for a couple of minutes.Add the milk-corn flour mixture and mix.
The mixture will thicken on cooking.Add salt and cheese and cook on low till cheese melts.Add a little water if the sauce id too thick and put in the pasta.Mix and add oregano and pepper. Stir to mix.
Serve immediately garnished with a few chili flakes and a pinch of oregano
I am also sending this to Srivalli's Kids Delight event themed - Pizza, pasta and noodles hosted by Mir..
- The sauce thickens on standing. Dilute it with a little hot water if needed. Also if not serving immediately, prepare the sauce and keep aside.Add the pasta just before serving,toss well and serve.
