Pastalicious

I love pasta , noodles and sphagetti ....I dont eat them very often but when I do,its always my first priority to make it wholesome .

So I concocted one of these pasta dishes ...It has pasta that comes in 5 different shapes which I mix up with chicken and vegetables (spinach , peas, beans and carrots )I do a tomato based sauce with garlic in olive oil to which I add italian seasoning , black pepper ,salt and red chili flakes and cook the veggies and chicken in the sauce .Then I add boiled and strained pasta and garnish with cheese.

Viola ,An interesting mix of spices, texture and healthy food.And ofcourse ,you can always turn it up a notch with a glass of red wine :-)


Enjoy !!

I have all the ingredientes except two. What kind of beans do you use? It looks like green beans (great pic) but are they Italian, regular bush beans, are they frozen, fresh or canned....I'm betting fresh..., same with spinach...fresh? I've never eaten spinach.....
