Pasta... I think most of us including kids and elders, love to have pasta ,But at the same time try to avoid it some time due to sauce and creams used to make it delicious. So I thought why not to give it a healthy twist that make people comfortable to have it without any guilt. I just added some veggies and oats to the regular pasta and it turned out super delicious, guilt free healthy breakfast for us. The combination is adapted from turban tadka but executed my way.
