This fusilli in roasted pepper and mushroom sauce is a great way to enjoy pasta. The sauce is a breeze to make; the ingredients for the sauce are roasted, thereby making it most flavourful.


The cold snap continues and the plants and trees in my little garden seem to be well confused. A couple of weeks ago, we were eating outside in the sunshine, and for the last few days, we’ve been huddled inside with the heating on! But then, what can one do against the forces of mother nature!



Coming back to the recipe for fusilli in roasted pepper and mushroom sauce, it is a healthy, quick and easy recipe which is also good on the eyes. It was put together at the last minute and I’m quite pleased with the results.

The pasta-

I have used whole wheat fusili pasta in this recipe, but others like penne etc can be used in the dish too. You can also use regular pasta instead of whole wheat. However, if you use regular pasta instead of whole wheat, you might need to increase the quantity of the regular one, as I find that whole wheat pasta is quite filling and goes a long way.


Stock-

I used some vegetable stock to cook the pasta and it did add more flavour.

With a bit of time management, this dish can be produced in minutes with minimum effort. While the oven does its work, cook the pasta to save time.



Serving suggestions-

I served the pasta with some fresh salad on the side along with some freshly made mango shake for a filling meal.

Cheese-

I haven’t used any cheese in the recipe. If you wish, you could grate some parmesan on the top before serving.
