Pasta With Maggi Masala

I have chosen to post a few options for kid's after school snacks as part of Week 1 of BM #38. It is always a challenge for me to make new and healthy snacks for my kids when they get back from school. 

On days when they agree to have a proper lunch menu (rice-dal-curry or chapati-curry) after they get back from school, life seems so easy but the scene is not always as rosy :). 

This idea of using the Maggi Masala arose from the fact that I don't like to feed my kids Maggi all the time and they love it all the same. So to strike a compromise, I have devised this recipe. The kids somehow are taken with this flavor of Maggi Masala. A win-win situation yet again!! 

Luckily or unluckily I have a box full of the maggi masala packets from when the kids used to gobble the maggi noodles raw! (Yes, raw uncooked noodles!! - craziness in many forms :) )

Ingredients - 

Pasta (I used whole wheat Penne) 2-3 handfulls
Mixed Vegetables 1 cup
Tomato Puree or Pasta Sauce 2 Tbsp (Optional)
Cheese, shredded 2 Tbsp (Optional)
Salt as needed
Maggi Masala 1 packet or more if needed (The Masala packet which comes in with Maggi Instant Noodles)
Butter/Oil 1 tsp

Pasta With Maggi Masala

Method Of Preparation -

Cook Pasta as per the instructions on the packet. 

Meanwhile boil some vegetables and set aside.

In a heated pan, add butter/oil, the boiled vegetables, pasta sauce, cheese, salt and Maggi Masala. Mix well and add in the cooked pasta.

Mix well and remove from fire. Serve hot.
