Whole wheat Pasta and Cheese !

Pasta,Vegetables and cheese.
Serves one

Being a mother of a picky eater has its upside too :) My daughter has always been a very choosy eater and concocting recipes for her has been a challenge.It's difficult to find recipes which are healthy and still satisfy the taste buds of a little one.This is a very filling and healthy recipe which kids and grown ups would love .And it can be whipped up very quickly !

Ingredients :
Whole wheat pasta - around 15 -20
   Broccoli - 3- 4 florets
   Peas - a handful
   Carrot - one ( peeled and chopped)
   Potato - a tiny one ( peeled and chopped)
Garlic - a tiny piece
Capsicum - 5-6 small pieces
All purpose flour - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 1/4 cup or lesser
Cheese (grated) - 2-3 tbsp
Butter or olive oil - 1 tsp
olive oil - 1/2  tsp
salt as needed

Method :
-Boil sufficient water and add salt and a tsp of olive oil.Add the pasta and let it boil until its well cooked.I usually cook it real soft when preparing for my daughter.
-Steam or boil the carrot,peas and potato.If boiling them save the water(vegetable stock) in which it boils.
-Add the butter to a pan, add the garlic and stir for a minute.Next add the broccoli and capsicum with a little salt .Sauté for a few minutes until they are cooked. Add the cooked vegetables and sprinkle the flour and sauté for a few mins.
-Add the drained pasta and mix well.Add the milk and the vegetable stock ,add salt as required. Let it cook on medium heat for a few mins.When the mixture is a little dry ,sprinkle the cheese and remove from the stove.
