The recipe to cook mixed sauce pasta isn’t a tough one if you keep certain things in mind. Cook the veggies for the pasta separately and make sure it doesn’t over cook, to retain crunch. Make sure to stir the sauce continuously to avoid lumps. For this recipe, all you need is to boil the pasta in water and salt and blanch veggies separately. Cook onion, tomatoes and garlic together and mix with tomato puree, grated cheese and cream to make the sauce. Add the blanched veggies and boiled pasta, mix well, top with parmesan cheese and your mixed sauce pasta is ready to be devoured!
