Spiral Pasta in Milk

I`m not very crazy about milk or any recipe made using Milk, But this is one recipe that caught my attention and tasted heavenly delicious even after adding Milk. I have avoided several processed food like sausages and canned pasta sauce and managed to use as many fresh Ingredients as possible.


Spiral Pasta - 2 cups (Or pasta with any shape or color you prefer)
Milk - 3 to 4 cups
Cauliflower - 1/2 cup
Fresh white button mushroom - 1/2 cup thinly sliced
Sweet corn (Fresh/Canned) - 1/2 cup
Capsicum - 1/4 of a medium sized one chopped
Onion shoots - 1/4 cup finely chopped
Green chilies - 3 split in two halves
Fresh black pepper - 4 tsp
Extra virgin olive oil - 4 tsp
Butter - 5 tsp
Shredded mozzarella Cheese - 1/4 cup
Ginger garlic paste - 4 tsp
Maida flour (finely-milled wheat flour) - 5 tsp
Mixed Italian Herbs - 1 tsp
Salt to taste


Bring enough water to boil with required amount of salt.
Soak pasta in the boiling water, cook according to the instruction on the packing and drain.
Heat a pan with olive oil. Add Mushrooms, Cauliflower, Capsicum, Green Chilies, salt and fry until the veggies are cooked.Put ginger garlic paste and stir fry until some nice flavor comes.
Now sprinkle black pepper, Onion shoots and sauté for a minute.
Finally add Sweet corn, fry for 5 minutes and switch off the stove.

Heat a pan with butter, once the butter melts put the Maida flour and fry for 5 minutes.

Now the Maida flour and butter together appears like a paste. Add milk and stir well until it turns somewhat like a smooth baby food. Sprinkle the Italian herbs, Shredded mozzarella Cheese, salt and mix well.

Put in the fried veggies, cooked pasta and stir until everything blends together. Garnish and serve hot.

Note: You can add any of your favorite veggies instead of Cauliflower.
