Microwave Creamy Dino Pasta With Veggies & Greens


Hi All!

Today I share a quick version  of Pasta which I cooked in the microwave and was ready to be served in fifteen minutes. It’s a perfect delight for kids and is loaded with veggies. Yes, you got me right, this version was again made so that the junior gets his dose of veggies which he conveniently wants to miss out, but surely not this time again. He had loved the Italian Veggie Squares and now this pasta was a feast again and Mommy was surely delighted to see him gobble up the entire bowl.

I am surely going to make this again for his lunch box as this method does not need to cook the pasta and the sauce separately. It is filling and nutritious too. I have used a dino shaped pasta but one is free to use pasta of their choice.


about cup and a half of pasta

5-6 tbsp chopped french beans

5-6 tbsp chopped carrot

5-6 spinach leaves chopped

a few tbsp of red and yellow capsicum cubed

3 spoons of cornstarch

150-200 ml  fresh cream

1/4 tsp garlic pwd

1-2 tsp white pepper pwd

salt to taste



Take pasta and the chopped beans and carrot in a microwave safe bowl and pour enough water that all the ingredients are immersed in it. Add salt to taste and cook on a 100% micro for about 8-10 minutes or till the pasta is done. Mine was done in 8 mins.

Now add the chopped spinach and capsicum to the pasta.

In the cream mix the white pepper, garlic and corn starch and mix.

Add the veggie-pasta mix to the cream and check the salt.

Cook on 100% microwave again for 3-4 minutes or more till the sauce thickens. One can also add cheese at this stage but I did not find it’s requirement as the cream helped.

Garnish with chopped chives and coloured capsicum.
