Veggie Mayo Pasta

Here’s a totally off-beat way of making pasta, which is guaranteed to give you a pleasant surprise! Not only is it super easy to make but awesomely tasty too.

The Veggie Mayo Pasta, believe it or not, does not have cheese sauce or red sauce, yet it tastes so perfectly creamy and saucy! The effect is achieved using eggless mayonnaise sauced up with the strained pasta water.

As the water contains starch from the pasta, it helps to thicken the sauce and gives it a rich mouth-feel. Colourful and crunchy veggies give you textural variety, while an ideal mix of herbs and spices give you an appetizing flavour and aroma.

You can serve the Veggie Mayo Pasta along with a bowl of soup and Garlic Bread.
