Fusilli with stir fried vegetables

I am always looking for one dish meals that would fit well in our lunch boxes. This is something that I make very often and is tasty as well as nutritious.


1 packet Fusilli Pasta (I use Bambino)
2 onions, sliced
2 tomatoes, sliced thinly
1 capsicum, chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup Soya chunks, soaked in water or cooked, depending on the type
2 tbsp and 1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp each of oregano, thyme, pasrley and basil
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp garlic paste
2 tbsp tomato puree
Salt and pepper to taste
A few sprigs of fresh Parsley

Boil the fusilli in a pot of water with a little salt and 1 tsp olive oil till it almost done. Drain and wash under running water.

Heat the 2 tbsp of olive oil in a pan and add the chilli flakes, garlic paste and onion slices. When the onions are translucent, add the tomatoes, mushrooms and capsicum and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the soya chunks, herbs and the tomato puree along with the salt and pepper and cook for another minute. Add the boiled pasta and mix well. Garnish with parsley and serve.
