Simple, Whole - Wheat Penne Pasta


A simple meal - Whole-wheat penne pasta and carrot - potato soup

Like soups, pasta recipes also are forgiving. We can go ahead with the ingredients we have at hand and create our own recipes with ease and satisfaction. Our meal today was one such simple, basic pasta sans cheese served along with carrot - potato soup.

For 2 servings, I had used about:
10 oz whole - wheat penne pasta
4 tsp olive oil
A garlic clove minced / garlic powder to taste
1 small tomato - diced
1 small green bell pepper - seeded & diced
8 oz tomato sauce
Salt & pepper powder for seasoning

How I did:
Heat oil in a saute pan and add minced garlic if using and fry. Then add tomato and bell pepper and sauté them till they soften. Then add the sauce and cook. Then add the seasoning and stir the mixture well.
Serve hot.

They go to Divya's 'Show me your whole grains'.
