Macaroni Pasta Indian Style

Hi All,
I have slowed down on blogging since I am juggling a number of things these days. Life is getting busy but it is good. Thanks to those who still stop by. I'm sorry for the disappointment of not seeing a new post very often. I'm aiming to post at least 2 posts per month. I think I might be running out of recipes too :)
But the best part of food is that there are so many cuisines. You could cook up a typical dish or you could do fusion. I love fusion especially when it comes to Chinese.
The other day I went to my friend's house. She had made Indian style pasta. It was the first time I had Indo-Italian! I was surprised how good it tasted! She didn't give me the recipe but mentioned that she added curry powder.
I had heard of pasta with curry powder before but had always been skeptical of how it would taste. Therefore, I never braved it out to try cook in my kitchen. After having tried it at my friend's house, I gained confidence that it can't be so bad. I was more worried that Mr. Husband would not relish this recipe. Hesitatingly, I proceeded with my own invented recipe. The only thing I specially bought for this recipe was curry powder. Other ingredients that I used were those that were readily available at home. Here it goes:
Ingredients:
1. Macaroni pasta or any other of your choice
2. Red onion, chopped
3. Alfredo sauce
4. Cheese sauce
5. Asorted vegetables (I used frozen beans and peas and fresh tomatoes)
6. Curry powder
7. Salt to taste
8. Olive oil
9. Basil and oregano
10. Dried red chili flakes
11. Garlic, minced

Directions:
1. Boil water and cook the macaroni until al dente. Set aside
2. Heat a deep bottomed vessel.
3. Add olive oil
4. Throw in garlic and onion and fry until they change colours.
5. Add alfredo sauce, cheese sauce, oregano, curry powder basil, and red chili flakes.
6. Mix well and bring to a boil.
7. Add in vegetables and cook on low to medium flame.
8. Add the macaroni and mix well.
9. Add salt to taste if required.
10. Adjust the seasoining to your taste.

Serve cold as a salad or warm as a main course dish.
Mr. Husband loved this dish. Thanks to my friend D!
