Pasta - quick chinese style recipe

Who doesn't love a hearty plate of pasta. Yet we avoid it because of the sauces that come with it. White sauce and red sauce come loaded in calories and are high in cholesterol levels thanks to the butter and cream used.

So here is a healthy yet yummy option for pasta which can be easily cooked at home. The best part is you can put in all your favourite veggies or egg, chicken and mushroom and make your own version of this !

Ingredients:

1. 3 cups boiled pasta
2. 2 large onion
3. Spring onions
4. 2 springs of lemon grass
5. 4 cloves of garlic finely sliced
6. I cup slices vegetables like carrots, beans, bell pepper
7. Green chillies
8. 1 tsp soya sauce
9. 3tsp tomato sauce
10. 1 tsp black pepper sauce
11. Herbs like oregano if available
12. Black pepper

Method:

1. Take about 1tsp oil in a non stick frying pan
2. Fry the garlic, onion, spring onions, lemon grass and bell peppers
3. Once the onion starts going brown, add the chopped vegetables and stir fry
4. If you are using meat or egg, add them now
5. Add the sauces and let the veggies/meat cook with the sauces
6. Once it is cooked, add the pasta, oregano or other herbs, salt and mix well
7. Add green chillies and black pepper if you want. You may also add coriander for that extra flavour

  1. Great and simple recipe...But sadly most of the pasta you get here is not even 100% whole wheat :(
