Spinach & Mixed Veggies Creamy Pasta

A simple,quick,a delicious creamy pasta with plenty of veggies and spinach which suits prefectly for lunch as well as for dinner...I prepared this wonderful looking colourful veggies and spinach creamy pasta yesterday for our lunch and served it with a simple egg omelette and french fries for my teddies..This pasta gets ready in less time also its quite a low fat version of creamy pasta as i prepared with milk and cornflour paste instead of using fresh cream...As my kids never say 'no' to pastas, i usually prepare pastas simply with a vegetable or either with tomato sauce,but this time i tried adding spinach with other colourful veggies,they simply love it and finish their plate without any hesitation, they loved this yummy and colourful pasta..Obviously making out of pastas with variety of veggies and greens is quite a better and best way to sneak these veggies and greens..Sending to A veggie for a month - Spinach guest hosted by Reshmi,event by Priya..
