I want to share one of my daughter's favorite Pasta recipe.........

Garlic Flavoured Hot Dog Pasta

Ingredients :
Pasta : 1/2 pack of any kind

Vegetables : Carrot, green bean, green & red pepper, corn, green peas
you can add any vegetables of your choice(cut in small pieces)

Onion : 1 (small)
Garlic : 4-5 pods(blanched)
Tomato sauce : 2-3 tblsp.
Chilli sauce : 1-2 tblsp. (optional)
Black Pepper : 1 tsp.
Salt to taste

Oil : 3 tblsp.

Method :
  • Cook pasta in a pan with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt until done. Drain and keep aside.
  • Hot-dogs are always cooked before packaging. But hot-dogs and their packaging fluid are sometimes contaminated. So I always wash and put them in boiled water for 5 minutes. Then deep-fry hot-dogs in oil until it gets brown from all sides. Cut in small round pieces and keep aside.
  • In a pan, pour oil, fry all the vegetables until done and keep aside. In the same oil, fry onions for some time, then add blanched garlic and stir fry for 2 mintes.
  • Then add tomato sauce and chilli sauce, if you child can't tolerate chilli sauce, avoid it. Mix finely, then add cooked pasta, vegetables and hot-dogs. Give it a good stir, add salt and black pepper. Mix everything together and you are done.
