Method

Step 1

Heat oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook just until it starts to brown, stirring constantly.

Step 2

Now add red chilli flakes and onion. Sauté onion until it becomes translucent. Add mushrooms and broccoli and sauté for few seconds.

Step 3

Now add cooked spaghetti, home-made red pasta sauce, and seasonings. Add reserved pasta stock if it looks too dry. Cook for 5 minutes until pasta absorbs flavour.

Step 4

Add cheese and let it melt for few seconds. Turn off the heat, sprinkle with basil; tossing to combine.

Step 5

Garnish it with fresh parsley and some more pepper and cheese. Serve it hot. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Variation: You can load up with any vegetables of your choice. I usually add whatever is available in the fridge.
  • You can also use your choice of pasta (Penne, fusilli, fettuccine etc.)
  • You can also try different types of cheese for different flavour
  • Vegan Option: Add vegan cheese instead of regular cheese
