Pasta with Veggies

I made this pasta for thanksgiving feast at school today. It came out pretty good and it was pretty easy to make. I used the rotini pasta from Safeway.  I used the whole box as it was for more than 30 kids and many parents brought something to eat so I felt one box will be enough.  Here goes the recipe I followed to make this pasta.


  1. Rotini Pasta - 1 box
  2. Frozen chopped broccoli - 3/4 cup
  3. Frozen Peas & Carrots -  1/2 cup
  4. Pasta Sauce - 1/2 cup (acc to taste)
  5. Cheese - 3/4 cup (4 cheese Mexican blend (cheese shredding))
  6. Mozzarella cheese - 1/4 cup ( I used amul cheese)
  7. Olive oil - 2 tbsp
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Kasoori Methi - 1 teaspoon.

  • cook Pasta according to the box instructions. Drain it when its fully cooked 
  • Mean time, microwave the frozen vegetables up to 5 minutes or until nicely cooked.
  • Take the cooked/drained pasta in a oven safe dish ( I used Pyrex).
  • Mix pasta sauce (I used Safeway Select Tomato Garlic Flavor) to the cooked pasta.
  • Add the cooked vegetables to it and mix everything well.
  • Sprinkle the cheese on top of it
  • Broil it for 5 to 7 minutes until cheese is fully melt.
I dry roasted a teaspoon of Kasoori Methi and sprinkled on top of this pasta at the final stage. This is absolutely optional.
