Everybody loves macaroni, and imagine the sad expression on the face of someone who craves for it but does not have time to prepare it. Well, push this thought out of your mind with this Macaroni in a Hurry!

Prepare the veggies within 10 minutes, cook the dish within 10, and voila, your favourite snack is on the table. It tastes really delicious with perfectly-cooked macaroni, a horde of crunchy and colourful veggies and a dash of aromatic spices and herbs too.

Just make sure you relish it fresh off the stove before the macaroni gets rubbery. If you have a little more time on hand, pair it with Zucchini and Yellow Pepper Toast and Quick Mushroom Soup for a complete meal experience.
