Today was special as I started my month long vacation and so thought of treating the kid with his favourite food. A few days back when S was travelling I and the kid went out to have some fun, we played and we ate out. He decided to have pasta from the live pasta corner and ordered a fusilli in cheese sauce with no veggies. One strong look from me and he requested the chef, please add some corn to mine. He loved the pasta which even I personally liked.
My kid can avoid veggies to any extent and is quite picky about it, so when I asked him today that whether he would like to have a similar kind of pasta he had the other day, he simply beamed. I assured him that I would make the pasta provided he lets me put veggies in that. With some reluctance he agreed and I did make him a similar kind rather a better kind of cheese pasta which he ate wholeheartedly and I was more than happy as I made him eat the veggies too.
1tsp finely chopped garlic
2 cups boiled macaroni
3/4-1cup of milk
1/4-1/2 cup cream
1 large pinch oregano
1 large pinch basil
1/4 cup grated cheese
salt to taste
freshly crushed black pepper to taste
3tbsp of chopped coloured bell peppers
chilli flakes and cilantro for garnishing
In a pan take the garlic and butter and heat it, once you start getting the aroma of garlic (do not let it change the colour) add the milk followed by the cream.
Tip in the herbs, fresh pepper and salt to taste.
Mix in the macaroni followed by the cheese. Keep the flame low and do not cook much as the sauce thickens fast.
Pour the pasta into the serving bowl and sprinkle cilantro and chilli flakes.
Eat immediately .
