Whole wheat pasta
in cashewnut sauce
2 cup whole wheat pasta (Penne)
½ cup cashewnuts
¼ cup milk
4-5 dry red chillies
4-5 garlic cloves (chopped)
1 cup broccoli (blanched)
1 capsicum sliced
Small tomato sliced (without seeds)
1 green onion or yellow onion sliced
Salt to taste
½ tsp Oregano
2 tbsp tomato sauce
Boil pasta as per the instructions on pack.
Dip dry red chillies in water(around ¼ cup) and microwave it for 20 second.
Now Blend milk, cashewnuts, garlic and dipped red chillies along with water to a fine paste.
In a pan, add ½ tsp of butter and stir fry your blanched broccoli.
Take out broccoli in a bowl.
Now add oil in pan, and saute capsicum and onion for 2-3 minutes.
Add tomatoes and saute for a minute.
Now on low flame add cashew nut paste to this. Keep stirring as it might stick to the pan. If it sticks a lot add few tbsp of milk to it. Stir it for another 3 minutes. Add tomato sauce and stir for a minute.
Now add pasta to the sauce. Sprinkle salt and oregano.
Now add broccoli (I added broccoli at the end so that it gives a nice color to pasta and should not mix to much with sauce).Give it a mix.
Yum yum pasta in cashew nut sauce is ready.
It also tastes good when chilled.
