Creamy pasta with vegetables

Last week made a pasta preperation…made according to D’s guidelines…simple and yet delicious and does not consume much time…



Penne pasta: 200 gms cooked al dente
Cream: 200 ml
Diced vegetables: 2 cups (Carrot, peas, corn, bell peppers etc)
Butter: 3-4 tsp
Dry Herbs: Oregano, Rosemary (1-2 tsp)
Salt: acording to taste


1. Cook the penne pasta till al dente and after washing it in cold water set aside (While cooking the pasta always add some oil and salt)
2.Take a pan, add butter and cook the diced vegetables in it.
3. Once the vegetables are cooked, add the pasta to it, add salt and mix well.
4. Add chilli flakes, oregano, rosemary etc and cook for 5 more minutes
5. Add the cream, mix well and let it simmer once. (if the pasta looks very thick, one could add some milk to get it to the right consistency)
6. Serve hot…

As a variation one could also add garlic while sauteing the vegetables…
