Pasta Stir-fry (with asparagus, broccoli, peppers and snow peas)

Once in a while, I like to go off the heavy pasta sauces and have it fresh and natural. And this is my go to dish then – the veggies keep changing but the concept is the same.

This dish is more like a warm pasta salad but a complete and fulfilling meal in itself. And a good way to get children to eat vegetables too. A dash of Tabasco gives the spicy edge for my Indian taste buds but you can skip it for a neutral flavour or add a tbsp of tomato sauce to appeal to children.



1. Conchiglie (any type of pasta can be used) – 2 cups
2. Asparagus – 3, sliced
3. Broccoli – ½ cup, florets
4. Snow peas – ½ cup, sliced
5. Red bell pepper – ½ cup, sliced
6. Red onion – 1, sliced
7. Olive oil
8. Salt – to taste
9. Pepper – to taste
10. Chilli flakes – ½ tsp
11. Tabasco sauce – 1 tsp


• Cook the pasta in salted water till al dente. Drain and keep aside.
• In a large wok or pan, heat olive oil and add sliced onion. Saute for one minute.
• Add asparagus, broccoli, bell pepper and snow peas and sauté for a minute more.
• Add the seasonings.
• Add the cooked pasta and stir fry on high flame for a minute.
