Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. I use minimal oil and no artificial colors.

Children love pasta. Alright, maybe that's an overstatement, but it is the favorite food of a lot of youngsters. Children probably like it because of the dish's smooth, creamy texture. For parents, it is an easy recipe to make. Parents who serve this dish can brim with satisfaction knowing that their children are getting plenty of veggies.

  1. Boil at least 4-5 glasses of water in a pot. Add penne pasta, a teaspoon of cooking oil, and some salt. Cook till the pasta is 90% done. Read the instructions on the packet so you know just how long to cook the pasta. Normally, penne pasta takes 12-13 minutes to cook. Drain the water completely. Run cold water over the pasta. Rinse, drain the water once again. Keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-bottomed pan. Throw chopped onion. Saute till it turns the golden color. Add ginger-garlic paste. Continue sautéing for a minute or till the raw aroma disappears.
