Yes, pasta can be made healthy too! Here cheesy sauce has been replaced with antioxidant rich spinach. Spaghetti used is also whole wheat, so there is room for a little more fibre.
Red capsicum not only adds, vitamin A and vitamin C, but vibrant red colour also.
The 2 tbsp of cheese added to the recipe can also be avoided. It will yet be equally delicious. Don’t forget to add the oregano and chilli flakes, to experience the true Italian flavour.
This recipe is surely worth a try, especially for kids who otherwise easily turn their heads towards junk foods!
