Wishing all of you out there a very happy and fulfilling 2008!
But keeping in mind the resolution, I share with you a simple recipe that is tasty, filling and nutritious all at once, not to mention colourful!!
1 cup Penne, boiled/cooked
1/4 cup Sweet Corn, blanched
1/4 cup Broccoli florets, blanched
1/4 cup French Beans, cut and blanched
1/4 cup Carrots, sliced and blanched
1/2 cup Mushrooms, chopped
2 tsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp Garlic, chopped
1 tsp Chilli Flakes
1 tsp Basil
1 tsp Parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a pan and add the garlic and saute for a few minutes. Add the chilli flakes along with the basil and parsley and fry for a minute. Add the mushrooms and after about 2-3 minutes add the remaining vegetables along with pasta. Add the salt and pepper and toss the mixture around in the pan. Enjoy this saute straight from the stove.
This is really as simple as it is beautiful. I will be making this more often when these lovely vegetables are in season here.
