Silky Spaghetti

I hardly get to use spaghetti or pasta in my kitchen n that too when I don’t find other options for a quick cooking! I always enjoyed using my pack of spaghetti making chinese samosa or any sort of rice variety… ;) But yes, it’s healthy as I get either wheat or semolina based packet only :)

All you people must be knowing by now that I love mushrooms… I enjoy cooking any dish with mushrooms! Sauteed ones for breakfast, creamed for brunch, tandoori for dinner… Anything works :) In this spaghetti too, I have used two of my favorite ingredients… Mushrooms n Broccoli along with a super-duper parmesan cheese :) Try this out and I’m sure kids would love to have a plate or two… That’s what my personal experience says as I’m no less than a kid ;)

SJ’s NOTE:

  • Adding 2-3 tbsp of pasta sauce is not a bad idea though! :P
  • Also, more vegetables can be added!!!
