How to make Pasta with Mix Veg
Firstly boil enough water in a utensil in which pasta can be easily submerged. Add salt and 1 tsp oil in water. Cover and allow pasta to cook on a low flame for 10 minutes. Keep in mind that the pasta has to be soft but not very soft else it will start tearing and the taste spoils too. Place boiled pasta in a strainer to remove excess water.
Remove the seeds from the capsicum and cut them into strips equal to pasta.
Heat a pan, pour oil in it. Put capsicum in hot oil; stir fry for 1-1 1/2 minute. Put the boiled pasta in the pan along with pasta sauce and ajinomoto. Continue to stir fry for another 1-2 minutes. Turn off the gas, cover the pan and let pasta remain in it for now. Let us prepare our mixed vegetables.
How to make Mixed Vegetable
Wash beans and cut them into medium sized pieces, add 1 pinch of salt and cook in steam for 4-5 minutes. Beans should have the same colour and look absolutely green. Cut broccoli into medium sized pieces, wash then add 2 pinches of salt; cook for 1-2 minutes in steam.
