Paneer Pasta / Curried Paneer Pasta / Indian Style Cheese Pasta

Paneer Pasta / Indian style Cheesy Pasta / Curried Paneer Pasta is my kids' recent favorite Pasta. My kids love both Paneer & Pasta a lotand when both combined in a single dish is a super duper feast for them.(That was the comment given by sanjay - super duper yummy pasta ;)] Not only my kids most of the kids loves Pasta & Paneer. So definitely this is one easy & handy recipe for Moms to feed their picky eaters. Also an interesting and easy to make recipe with great taste. I did not want to make it more spicy so added less masala. But if you want it super spicy and a masala pasta you can add more spices & spice powders. Here i used Tri colored Fusili Pasta, you can use any pasta which your kids love. Paneer Pasta sure gives you a rich and cheesy pasta taste with mild flavors. Do give it a try and let me know how it turned out to you. Now off to the recipe...
