Lemon spaghetti with paneer

There are times when you are about to make dinner and when you open the fridge, :( the empty shelves stare back at you. If you have some pasta (spaghetti) on hand, 1-2 vegetables and lemons then the dinner is only a few minutes away. To make it more full-fledged meal add home made paneer cubes(At the boiling point of milk add 1 to 2 spoons of white vinegar or 1-2 lemons to separate the paneer from milk. Do it fast as over boiling of paneer will make it hard. Use a muslin cloth separate it completely from the water and hang it for a few minutes to drain excess water).

Lemon zest Spaghetti  Recipe:

Sauté some vegetables like onion, capsicum, broccoli etc in little oil and add little salt to it. Boil water in a pan and then add spaghetti, 1 tsp of oil and salt to it. Cook until tender and then sieve it from water. Put a pan on flame and put ½ tsp of oil, add the vegetables, spaghetti and the red pasta sauce(homemade sauce: in one tsp oil add some crushed or grinded garlic cloves, sauté it for a minute on low flame and then add 2-3 tomato puree, ½ tsp of oregano, red chilli powder and salt to taste. Sauté it for another 2 minutes and the sauce is ready).

Switch off the flame just after mixing the above ingredients and then add a few lemon drops, a pinch of lemon zest and garnish with paneer and olives.
Serve warm……………… : ) agoodstuff
