I love pasta dishes a lot, i make them quite often. I have quite a few collections of them in this blog. You can check all of them here. My favorite ones are veg and chicken pasta, chicken alfredo, keema macaroni, alio olio and many more..
Pasta makes a quick dinner or lunch box dish for your kids..It is healthy and filling at the same time, plus your kids will love it for sure..And you can almost add anything, any vegetables in the pasta. Pasta is quite bland on its own, so it picks up the flavours which you add beautifully..
So give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
