Pasta Chaat

My little one loves Pasta. He loves pasta with red sauce and gets very excited every time I make Pasta. 

I had been looking for different versions of making Pasta. My son is not a great fan of trying new things out. So I wanted a recipe he wouldn’t hesitate to try. 

My close friend shared this Pasta Chaat recipe with me. I love the whole Indian twist in this Italian dish. Found it interesting, so tried it and was glad when my son said “mmmm….this is yummy!”

This is a very quick and easy snack.

Thank you Lekshmy for sharing this recipe!
