Basil Pasta

I make Pasta for my girls once or twice a week. Every time I try to put different kinds of vegetables. Once with corn, once with broccoli, once with green peas and carrots.  This time I made it with peas and corn.  But i added basil pasta sauce to add more flavor to it.  It came out pretty good and my girls liked it.  Here goes the recipe.


  1. Tri Root Organic Penne Pasta -  2 cup
  2. Salt to taste
  3. Olive Oil -  1 tbsp
  4. Tomato-Basil Pasta Sauce - 1/4 cup
  5. Frozen Peas & Corn - 3/4 cup
  6. Amul Cheese - 4 tbsp
  7. Milk - 2 tbsp
  • Cook Pasta according to the instructions given in the packet.
  • Mean time, microwave peas and corn adding couple of teaspoons of water and keep it aside
  • In a separate sauce pan, boil milk and melt cheese adding it to the boiling milk.
  • Add cooked pasta when the cheese is fully melt along with cooked vegetables.
  • Add the pasta sauce to it and mix every thing well.  Serve it hot.
I made this as evening snack for my kids.  They both had it after coming back from school.  Even though I am not a very big fan of pasta, I kinda liked this because of the basil flavor.
