Vegetable pasta in red sauce recipe video. Quick & delicious pasta recipe made with red sauce. I usually follow this recipe of pasta in red sauce, it is one of the kids’ favourite pasta recipes at home. Today’s recipe is a variation of the earlier one making use of mixed veggies. You can pair this up with a simple vegetable clear soup or some bread toast.
I have used mixed veggies like carrots, beans and green peas. However you can also add veggies like sweet corn, baby corn, capsicum and cauliflower depending on whatever goes well with you.
Usually red sauce is made with a bit of tomato paste that adds color to the pasta, but I have not used it here. If you like to add, you can use upto 1 tbsp of it here.
There is no cheese used in this recipe, if you like you can use it.
