Broccoli Pasta / Simple Broccoli Pasta

For Vegan Thursday, an event by Priya of Priya's Versatile recipes, am sharing a kids friendly Pasta recipe with Indian touch and our family favorite veg Broccoli. My kids love Pasta that too little one's most favorite, he love to eat the cooked pasta as such before sauteing. But i never cooked cheesy or creamy or sauce based pasta for him, always a simple stir fry method. Very rarely pasta with tomato basil sauce. And today's pasta is a simple pasta with Indian touch. Not much vegetables, spices just onions and broccoli. This is their recent favorite pasta. Here you go.,
