Pepper Carrot Macaroni

Pasta from Del monte

Italian food tour, learning from an Italian Nona… that was the temptation! The chef in me was raring to prove herself. I had always fantasized that I had something Italian in me. May be, ages ago, I had incarnated in a picturesque Italian village…

I prodded the sleeping Italian part of my soul a hundred times and still no recipe materialized. The nice little packet of pasta from Del monte was used up in the experiments in search of that elusive dish that would land me the most coveted prize in the competition. But the Italian food memories embedded in my soul continued to sleep; even after receiving umpteen kicks!

Then today, I decided to try one last time before giving up. And this is what I ended up with.

Pepper Carrot Macaroni

1)      Boil macaroni with enough water and salt to taste and cook it till tender. Drain away the excess water.
2)      Saute the Onion and Carrots in oil in a pan and add the cooked macaroni to it. Sauté for a minute and pour in the boiled milk. Stir and add the pepper powder (I added 1/2 a teaspoon). Spread cheese over it.

And it was so yummy that my son finished it off within no time.
