Masala Macaroni with Peas
April 12, 2012 § Leave a comment
When my kids are hungry and I’m too busy to cook, I tell them to find something to eat themselves. My daughter will dig in the cupboards and if she’s lucky, grab a box of mac and cheese. I usually nibble on the left overs which I splash with hot sauce. One day when I was feeling creative, I decided to try an Indian twist and added masala and peas. It turned out delicious and it’s a fun way to spice up an ordinary box of macaroni.
Cooking time 15 minutes
1 box of organic macaroni
1/2 cup (125 ml) peas
1/2 tsp (2 ml) masala
sprinkle of salt
dash of hot sauce (optional)
1. Prepare the macaroni according to the package. A couple of minutes before the pasta is ready, throw in the peas and cook for a minute or two. Drain pasta and peas.
2. Heat the same pot on medium-low heat and add the vegan or regular butter. When the butter sizzles, add the masala and stir. Add the milk and when warm add the cheese and mix with a fork to break the lumps.
3. Add the pasta and peas, stir and spoon into a bowl. Add hot sauce if you want an extra kick.
