Vegan Spiral pasta in white Ragu Sauce

There are innumerable ways pasta is made. I have tried a lot of variations myself but if you like white saucy pasta with lot of vegetables. This is so far the best.

Here is what we need -

  • spiral pasta
  • handful cherry tomatoes
  • 1 zucchini
  • 5-6 baby carrots
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 2-3 pods of garlic
  • oregano leaves (Store bought)
  • Italian Seasoning  (Store bought)
  • crushed red chili  (Store bought)
  • 1/2 cup Ragu's ( or your choice or Fresh home made) white sauce
  • salt per taste
  • 1 tbs Olive Oil

Let water come to rolling boiling. Add salt and some pasta. Let it cook uncovered for 15 minutes. Add spoonful of oil to water to avoid sticking.

In a pan. Add olive oil, Chopped garlic and oregano leaves, Italian seasoning and crushed red chilies. It will leave nice aroma. Add chopped onions.

Chop carrot and zucchini in big chunks. Microwave it with water for 5 minutes to cook. Drain the water and add it the pan to cook a little more.

Cook it covered for another 5 minutes. Add white sauce cook for another 5 minutes. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce mix. Switch off the stove and keep it covered for a few minutes.

Garnish it with some Parmesan cheese... yumm!!
