Farfalle pasta ( Indian twist)

Farfalle or bow tie pasta gets its name from the Italian word farfalla( butterfly).This looks exactly like a bow tie. Though its initially made like a rectangle shaped pasta, then its cut at the edges and then pinched in between giving a bow tie shape to it. Cooking with lots of cheese is really a good idea as the cheese can get stuck to the edges making it more delicious. But I have Just added the cheese at the end of the recipe( keeping the calories in mind... din't want all the calories from the fat).Here goes the recipe...

Pasta - 1cup
chopped garlic - 2 tbsp
carrots - 1/2 cup
beans - 1/2 cup
bell peppers - 1/2 cup
spring onions - 1/2 cup
chilly powder - 1 tbsp
paprika powder 1/2 tsp
pepper - 1/2 tsp
tomato puree - 1 small tin
Chopped parsley - 1 tbsp
chopped basil - 1 tbsp
veg stock cube - 1 nos
cheddar cheese - 1/4 cup grated
olive oil - 4 tbsp

In a stew pot boil water. Add pasta along with pinch of salt to the boiling water and cook for 12 min or untill its cooked. Strain water using a colander and keep the pasta aside. In a wok add olive oil, chopped garlic, chilly powder and saute. Now add juliennes of carrot, beans, bell peppers,spring onions and stir for a min. Add Tomato puree, chopped parsley and basil along with veg stock cube( add salt if required, as stock cubes contain salt) and stir fry. Finally add pasta along with pepper powder and give a good toss cook for a min and then change it to a serving plate garnish with cheese and serve.

You'll can add cheese of your choice. After topping with the cheese microwave for a min( this melts the cheese really quick).
