Veg Fusili Pasta in Tomato Sauce | Easy Pasta recipes | Kids recipes

Cook under 30 mins / Quick Cook dishes : thats the theme for this week’s Blogging Marathon which could feature any main course or side dish. So after Jain style Corn Palak Curry, Menthye Bataani Bhath, heres another quick to make and kid pleaser – Veg Fusili pasta in Tomato Sauce.

Technically a fusion dish, this was the first pasta dish that my little one ate. Both kids and the husband prefer tomato based pasta dishes to the white sauce, while I like the latter.

 The veggies although optional, increase the fibre content and make it healthy too and a perfect way to sneak in extra veggies for kids 🙂

Hope you enjoyed this series of Quick Cook dishes.
