SIMPLE AND EASY PASTA


I prepared this pasta dish in just 15 minutes after a long day out. We wanted to have something simple and tasty and I was not in the mood to cut any vegetables. I just cooked some pasta and tossed it with some sauces and lots of cilantro and it was absolutely delicious. Adding cilantro adds a nice subtle flavor to the dish. Again any type of vegetables can be added here for additional taste and nutrition.


INGREDIENTS

  1. Any whole wheat pasta around ½ a packet.
  2. Onion- 1.
  3. Chopped cilantro, 1 cup.
  4. Ground pepper according to taste.
  5. Low-sodium soy sauce, 2 tablespoons.
  6. Chili sauce, 1 teaspoon (optional).
  7. Salt to taste.


PREPARATION

Cook the pasta to al-dente, drain the water, and let it cool. Meanwhile dice the onion finely. Add some oil to a pan or wok and when the oil is hot enough, add the onions and half of the chopped cilantro and sauté everything until the onion turns translucent. Then add the sauces, salt, pepper, and the cooked pasta and mix everything well. Mix in the remaining of the chopped cilantro at the end and serve hot.

Pasta seems so easy and quick to do. Love that addition of cilantro. Bet it could have tasted with lot of flavor. I always fill myself with a cup of 'cup noodles' after a long day out:) But yours seem a very good idea to get the nutrients without that bulk of sodium I consume:).
A must to try da.
