Quick Pasta

This recipe I obtained from a magazine and is good for a quick Italian treat.I tried it out with the fusili pasta.

Pasta :-1cup
Onion:1 medium
Garlic:2-3 cloves
Tomatoes chopped/crushed:1/2 cup
Basil,oregano:1/2 tsp each
Mixed vegetables(broccoli,capsicum,mushrooms,peas,frozen corn):1/2 cup
(I used broccoli,peas and corn)
Salt &Pepper:as per taste

Cook pasta as per the package instructions,adding the veggies at the last 2 minutes of cooking.Drain and keep aside.In a pan, heat oil and saute chopped onion and garlic till lightly browned.Add tomatoes,salt,basil and oregano and saute till they get cooked and juice oozes out.Add the pasta and mix well till it gets coated with sauce.Adjust the salt and add freshly ground pepper as well.Garnish with parmesan cheese.

It would be better if you could add the fresh herbs rather than the dried powders .But I made do with the powders and the result was quite good.
