Rainbow Pasta

Today I am featuring a quick fix experiment that turned out to be a kids favorite... Rainbow Pasta, as the name says you can find rainbow colors in this pasta. This is made by routine elbow pasta ( or macaroni) but the colorful mini sweet peppers will make it special and appealing to eyes and taste buds. This is a very simple and easy recipe and can be perfect pack for Lunch Box too!
Rainbow Pasta
Elbows Pasta  ( or macaroni) - 1 cup ( uncooked)
Sweet Mini Peppers - 10 ( red, yellow, orange ones)
Broccoli - 5 florets
Mushroom - 4 to 5 piece ( medium size)
Olive Oil - 1 Tbsp
salt - 1/4 tsp
black pepper - 1/8 tsp
Dry basil - 1 tsp ( you can use fresh if available)
Alfredo Sauce - 1/3 cup
Parmesan Cheese - 2 tbsp


  1. Cook the pasta according to direction. Drain the pasta and set aside.
  2. Add olive oil to the non-stick pan. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped mini sweet peppers and saute them until soft. Now add chopped mushroom and broccoli to the pan, add salt and black pepper, and basil.
  3. Once the vegetables become tender, add cooked pasta and mix it well ( with out breaking).
  4. Now add the Alfredo sauce and mix it well. Top with Parmesan cheese and switch off the stove and server warm. 


  • to make it more appealing for kids, I will get SpongeBob or Space shaped macaroni. That makes it exciting for kids, they will focus more on their favorite character than the vegetables here... Got the trick!
