Cheesy Egg Penne Pasta | Kids favorite!

I am basically a vegetarian turned eggetarian after marriage. I was not comfortable eating egg, but would try it because of the health benefits. Now also I cannot have egg in the raw forms like half fries or some bland egg scrambles!
But yes now i do try to include egg in my cooking so that it becomes nutritious for the little one as well as all of us.

Here i have created the sauce with egg, cheese and lots of veggies. I added the egg after adding the boiled pasta to the veggies and stirred it continuously, so that it remains like a sauce.

Do try this out and let me know how you liked it :)


2 cups Penne pasta
2 Eggs
1 Onion
1 tomato
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tbsp chopped Green capsicum
1 tbsp Red bell pepper cut lengthwise
1 carrot cut lengthwise
1 broccoli floret
1 cheese slice
2 tbsp of mixed grated cheese
half tsp Black pepper powder
Salt As needed
1 tbsp Oil


Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Drain the water from the pasta and keep it aside. I have used penne

pasta, you can choose any pasta of your choice.

Heat oil in a pan, add finely chopped ginger, garlic and saute until raw smell vanishes.add the onions, salt and saute until they turn golden brown color. Add tomato. Cook until it turns mushy.
Now add the capsicums/bell peppers, broccoli, carrot and fry for 3 to 4 minutes  covered on medium flame or until the vegetable turns soft.
Add mixed herbs,cheese, salt and mix thoroughly until well combined.
Now add the cooked pasta and toss it gently on low flame, Add the egg to the mixture. mix until the vegetables and eggs are well mixed with the pasta.
Adjust the amount of salt, black pepper powder according to your taste.
Switch off the stove and transfer it to a serving bowl.
Finally sprinkle mixed herbs or oregano, garlic powder .drizzle few drops of olive oil and serve them hot.
