Winter Spaghetti with Cauliflower, Green Beans, Capsicum, Tomatoes n Parmesan
After a gap of the whole month of February and 20 days of March here I come back, in fact I never have been away, I used to come n look around but I could never posted somehow. To tell you I was away from my home in a different city for a new project which is not related to food, so there were long journeys across India and some of it took as long as 32 hours! I missed all of you so much, even though we are not directly connected, somehow we are connected mentally for the love of food n life and I missed all of that of being with you while I was not here.
Spaghetti is close to my heart, not that it has always been. In fact when I first started eating it I quite disliked it, I found it hard n chewy, around that time I was a fan of noodles which are relatively softer , I loved stir-fried noodles that time, I still do. When I started cooking spaghetti initially my disappointment stayed for a couple of trials, the flavors I was putting into it were not attracting me but as I went on cooking it, I was slowly getting there. There is this time period when I realized I’m cooking it right and I began to like it, that was time when the love developed and the spaghetti opened itself to me. It is like the spiral of the spaghetti was a puzzle and when you finally solve it you get to the real flavors where you can only love it. So here is the truth be told: I Love Spaghetti.
This recipe that I cooked just before my journey begun is in fact a true winter recipe, because not just it was made in the winter, it was made with cauliflower, green beans, capsicum which comes in abundance in the winter in my place. When I finally bite into it, I said ‘Ah! Man’ my mind just sang a song, the flavors of the cauliflower, green beans, onions, Parmesan all coming together, the texture of the veggies, the depth of flavors, it was a little heaven for me. This is what good food does to you, it can make you happy n smiling at toughest times, it can make you friends with complete strangers, it can make you feel at home when you are thousands of miles away, in a long tiring tough journey it can make you feel everything is going to be all right.
So now I will present you the recipe straight away! Cook it and discover it!
