Pasta with Meat Balls

This is basically an healthy recipe for people like me who are on a perpetual diet. Well, not diet exactly but people who like to eat healthy. 

Initially I had a misconception that pastas are unhealthy, but then its actually the cheese and the butter that makes it fattening. So here is a healthier version of pasta with loads of veggie and of course the chicken.


1 bowl          Boneless Chicken
10 - 15         Garlic Cloves
1/2 tsp          Pepper Powder
2 small         Tomatoes
1/2 each       Red and Yellow Bell Peppers
1/2 cup         Mushrooms
1 tsp             Chilli flakes
1/2 tsp          Mixed herbs
1 tsp             Olive Oil
1 cup            Farfalle Pasta
2 tsp             Cheese


For the meat balls I have used chicken mince but you can use mutton also. Also I have boiled the balls but they can be fried also

To the boneless chicken add about 5 to 6 cloves of garlic and the pepper powder and mash it in the mixer.

Apply some oil on your palms and make small balls. Heat water in a vessel and when it starts to boil lower the heat and add the balls slowly. Cook for 10 to 15 mins. Drain and keep the water.

In the same water put in the Farfalle Pasta and cook till done but not overcooked. Drain and drizzle just a little oil.

In a Pan heat the Olive oil. Add the chopped garlic and saute. Next add the tomatoes, Mushrooms, the bell peppers, chilli flakes, mixed herbs and mix well. Now add the pasta and toss well.

Serve in a plate, garnish with cheese and cilantro.
