Meal in a box

Ojas is a very picky eater, very choosy about what he eats and even if he likes something he eats it very less... but one thing that works mostly with him is Pasta (a big kala tikka and touchwood here) So I try and make pasta very often and also try and make it as healthy as possible... this one is one of my own creations that comes out very very yummy and is highly nutritious
