Quick, Healthy and Fat Loss Friendly Pasta Recipe That You Can Also Take To Work

If you think that Pasta cannot be part of a healthy and weight loss friendly diet; think again!

This recipe of elbow macaroni with lots of mixed veggies not only fills you up fast and keeps you satiated for a longer time; it is also flat belly friendly.

The trick is to reduce the quantity of your pasta and increase the quantity of your mixed veggies.

 

Meet the ingredients

  • 1 cup of elbow macaroni
  • ½ cup of green pepper
  • ½ cup of carrot
  • ½ cup of green beans
  • ¼ cup of onion
  • ½ of oil bean seed (OPTIONAL)
  • 2 spoons of oil( I used olive oil)
  • Curry, thyme, rosemary, pepper, salt and seasoning cube to taste

 

How to prepare

  • Wash and cut the carrot, green peeper and beans
  • Cut the onion
  • Heat a frying pan on a medium heat
  • Add the oil and as soon as it gets a bit hot add the onion and turn
  • Add the veggies and turn till its crisp not soggy
  • Add the seasoning and spices to taste

In another pot

  • Over high heat boil 4 cups of water
  • Add a pinch of salt to the boiling water.
  • Add the pasta and stir frequently (Don’t cover the pot. If you do, it will boil over and extinguish the heat or make a mess of your cooker)
  • Cook till the pasta is al dente (Don’t boil till it becomes soft and soggy. As you cook check the pasta, cut 1piece of macaroni in ½ with your fingertips or knife and check the inside. When the white part in the middle becomes a tiny white line, it’s ready)
  • Strain it immediately
  • Pour the Macaroni into the vegetable stir fry
  • Turn it till it’s properly mixed
  • Serve immediately

For office – Pour the mixed food into your flask and take to work for a healthy homemade lunch.

Enjoy
