Being a pasta fan , I use to experiment with new taste and flavours by using different healthy options in hand. Though I generally use oats to make sauce for my pastas to make it more healthier but this time used oats pasta , which I got as a sample in mall. It's really worth trying. After trying many saucy pastas , this time I made non saucy yet superbly delicious veggie pasta for breakfast and for my kids tiffin. It turned out so yummy and cheesy that no pasta fan can resist asking for another serving. I just used simple and handy ingredients but the result is just wow. So hope you will too love this simple yet delicious preparation.

*You can use any pasta of your choice and availability.
*You can also add any veggies of your choice like peas, sweet corns, brocoli etc. I used whatever was in hand.
* If you feel pasta looks too dry then can add 2-3 tbsp of pasta drained water and mix well. Consistency will become fine without much effort.
* Always boil pasta to the recommended time on its packet. Never over do it otherwise it will spoil the whole dish.
* You can adjust spices as per your taste.
This pasta can be served as breakfast or can be a good option for lunch box too. You can have it any time without much guilt. Hope you all will like this simple healthy yet delicious pasta. Please pour your valuable comments and suggestions here, they meant a lot to me.
