Make sure you buy Pasta by checking the Ingredients. It should be either "Whole wheat flour" or "whole Durum wheat Semolina" and not "Refined Durum wheat Semolina".
Both "Whole wheat flour" and "whole Durum wheat Semolina" are high in protein. So, Pasta is healthy and this recipe is easy to cook and tasty too.
I have kept it simple and basic but you can add Mushrooms, carrots, peas , green beans and any Veggies you want. Now, for this dish, we are not adding any cheese so that it can be low in calories, easy to digest and satisfy our Indian taste buds too. Bon appétit !!! :)
