Today’s recipe is a rather simple one. Mothers often complain that their kids don’t eat enough vegetables. The best way to make kids and a few adults eat their portion of nutrition is to disguise these vegetables into their favorite food, such as a pasta! That’s the aim of today’s recipe – Creamy Mushroom Pasta.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

2 cups pasta (boiled)
2 cups mushrooms (sliced)
1 carrot (chopped)
1 onion (coarsely chopped)
1 capsicum chopped
½ cup American sweet corns
2 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper

For sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon fine flour (Maida)
2-3 cups milk
Coriander for garnishing

Serves: 2

Method of cooking:

First, to prepare the sauce, glaze the pan with butter. Simmer the flame and add flour (Maida), mix it well and as soon as you start getting the smell of the flour cooking, add milk. Now whisk it, add 1 teaspoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1 teaspoon salt, till you get a thick consistency. Now keep it aside.

Note: The sauce should be prepared on low flame only.

In a wok, add oil, sauté all the veggies with salt, pepper and oregano and cover it for 3-4 minutes.

When the mushrooms start releasing its juices, add the white sauce that was kept aside. 

Now finally, add the boiled pasta into this creamy sauce. Mix well, garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot!
