Veggie Pasta

Hey there! I haven’t posted a pasta recipe in a while, and this one is AWESOME, so I thought why not post it? The sauce isn’t a super traditional-tasting one, it uses cumin and chilli powder and some other spices, but the end result is delicious. Also it comes together in like fifteen minutes so that’s pretty sweet. Pasta is just one of those foods that’s so comforting and filling, and by adding a ton of veggies to it makes it feel lighter and healthy too, so you get the best of both worlds. Hope you love it!
