Mixed Vegetable Pasta (Vegan) - Easy Pasta Recipes

We all love pasta in our family, especially the kids. I always look for different ways to prepare pasta. Two days back, I had to cook lunch for me and the kids while hubby had lunch outside.  I didn't want to cook the usual lunch of rice and dhal, but wanted to cook something simple and also sneak in veggies and so ended up making this mixed vegetable pasta. This was so quick to prepare and with simple flavors, kids loved it and finished it in no time.
