Creamy Veg Pasta

Pasta, a lot of different types available in the market. I  try different recipes using pasta as  hubby loves it so much.Very few foods are cooked and adored by the people worldwide and pasta is one of those which enters  all types of cuisine. I used fusilli pasta You can try it with any variety of pasta.I added carrot and capsicum but beans , mushroom can also be added to make it more nutritious.Don’t overcook the veggies ,as the veg chunks will give a great taste.
