Herbilicious Pasta

Posted in : Main course on by : apsara Tags: , , , , , ,

This is a pasta recipe using my favorite herbs- mint and coriander. The homemade pasta sauce is wholesome and delicious. This recipe is suitable for vegans since it tastes good without cheese. The addition of nuts adds a great texture.


whole wheat penne/rotini pasta- 1 cup

fresh mint leaves-   1 bunch

fresh coriander leaves- 1 bunch

chopped vegetables- 1 cup (I used potato and zuchini in this)

organic canola oil- 2 tsp.

olive oil-  2 tsp.

ginger (grated)- 1/2 tsp

onion (chopped)- to taste (as little or as much as you want)

garlic powder- a pinch (optional)

green chilly- 1 or 2 small

pepper- to taste

turmeric powder- a pinch

Italian spices (blend)- 1 tsp.

walnuts (small bits)- 1/8 cup

Grated cheese- to taste (optional)


1. Wash mint and coriander and grind along with green chillies in a blender.

2. Add pasta and a little salt to boiling water, close with lid  and cook on low till pasta is tender. Drain water.
