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!

I had always tried pastas in cheese sauce and tomato sauce. But i was glad to try this recipe with spinach sauce. This is a good way of adding iron and vitamin E to our diet. Also the recipe is made in minimal oil and minimal cheese and thus not too high in fat too.
