L  ight , Healthy and still yumm ..Quite a one pot meal! Tats all tat I can call this recipe.. Its full of my fav flavour.. with just the right ingredients..

My friends mum used to make this for his lunch box.. at college.. More than 6 yrs up .. and one fine day I managed to get in touch with this friend of mine.. who used to call this a  Macroni pasta.. We used to wait all those 4 years whenever he would get this for lunch and we wud attack it right then. My first introduction to Pasta…when was urs??? I have given this borrowed recipe a twist with the available ingredients..
