No Rules Pasta by Saveen Kaur


This Pasta is made with love, followed by instinct and is healthy! Yes you read it right :)
For me cooking is like meditation and I find it to be so much fun when I blend in ingredients together and it gives me a delicious outcome which is loved by all!

So when I go to make something in the evening, I see what it there in the fridge and make an on the spot decision to make whatever I feel like.

That is how this pasta was created!

By the way this has a few Chinese food elements as far as the sauce is concerned and a bit of Indian food as far as Cottage Cheese and Shahi Paneer Masala is concerned.

Please don't judge my Pasta, because for me cooking is all about breaking rules, creating a beautiful and delicious fusion which is thoroughly relished 😋

Please note, if you have wheat pasta or pasta made with some other healthy alternative, this dish will be super healthy and less in calories for sure!
