Vegetable Whole Grain Pasta / Vegetable Penne Pasta

           For the Day 3 of Blogging Marathon Under the theme "Whole Grain Dishes" I am going to share an interesting and Delicious Penne Pasta(whole grain) recipe. This is the slightly adapted from RachaelRay's Summer Vegetable Pasta recipe. Few weeks back i bought Italian style Breadcrumbs from Walmart to fry Salmon for my kids. Other than that i dunno what to do with the bread crumbs, i simply used to make Oven Roasted Broccoli. When i saw this pasta recipe @ i was so much attracted as the recipe calls for Italian style bread crumbs, so without second thought i bookmarked it and tried few days back for my breakfast. I tweaked the recipe little as i lack zucchini, I used Mixed vegetable and also substituted basil with Parsley. The result was awesome, pasta without any sauce or blend if Indian Masala, simply sauteing with garlic,vegs n finally with the touch of Italian style breadcrumbs...very tasty n flavorful one...Generally i don't like cheese so i avoided that also...overall it was a super healthy n tasty breakfast. Great enough to kick starts one's day,do give it a try n let me know h it turned out to you....Now to the recipe...
