As the season of love is arriving, here is an easy pasta recipe for you so that you may make 14th February more special with your handmade pasta for your loved one.

The ingredients you'll be requiring are -

Pasta - 1 whole packet
Fresh Milk - 2 Liters
Fresh Cream - a cupful
Cheese Cubes - 6 cubes grated
Red Bell Pepper - 1 chopped
Yellow Bell Pepper - 1 chopped
Green Capsicum - 1 chopped
Sweet Corn - A cupful and boiled
Onion - 2 large and chopped
Garlic - 1 chopped
Fresh Mushrooms - 100 grams, boiled and cut into pieces
Oregano - 4 tablespoons
Chili Flakes - According to taste
Salt - According to taste
Vegetable/ Virgin olive oil - 4 tablespoon
Cooking Time -30-40 minutes
Cooking Process -

Cut the packet of pasta and empty the entire content into a pan filled with warm water. Add a little salt and few drops of oil into it so that the pastas do not stick to each other. When the pastas become tender, drain the water then add cold water and few drops of oil to it and keep aside.
Now heat the oil in a deep skillet and fry the chopped onions and garlic. Keep the flame medium. While frying, add a pinch of salt to them. When the onions turn golden, turn the flame lower and slowly add the milk and stir simultaneously. When the milk warms, add the grated cheese and then the fresh cream one by one with continuous stirring (it must be noted that sometimes while adding cream in into the milk, there remains a chance of the milk getting destroyed so always use fresh cream). Let the milk simmer for some time. When the milk is thick, add the pastas after draining the water. Then add the bell peppers, capsicum, sweet corn and mushroom one by one. Turn the flame to medium again and keep on stirring the mixture. You may also add some salt if required. When it gets cooked, switch off the flame. Now add the oregano and the chilly flakes and mix it well. And there you go, the pasta is ready to be served.

Tip: You may also serve garlic bread along with the pasta if you are making it for any guests. It is recommended that this preparation should be served hot. Non-vegetarians may add boneless boiled chicken pieces in this instead of mushrooms pasta and enjoy pasta right at their home.
