Pumpkin And Spinach Pasta

                   Iv been wanting to make this pasta from Nandita's blog for a long time now. Iv been drooling over the pictures on her blog. Time to make it myself and show her that I can do it tooooo :P........lol

                  After a guilty weekend at Langkawi eating only unhealthy (yummy) food, this pumpkin and spinach pasta was all I needed!packed with nutrition.........and too good to be true.... :D Sigh!

1 cup spinach
1 1/2 cups pasta ( you can add more if you like)

pasta seasoning ( I used dried oregano and rosemary)
1/4 - 1/2 cup milk
2 tsps cornflour
1 tbsp cheese (you can use more :) )
salt
oil



PROCESS:
  •  Cook the pasta as per instructions on the packet. drain and keep aside.
  • put the pieces of pumpkin in a pressure cooker with little water and cook for a few whistles till pumpkin turns soft. Puree it in a blender.
  • Blanch the spinach in boiling water for a few minutes and then run some cold water over it. chop and keep aside.
  • heat some oil in a wok and saute the onions till they soften.
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and saute.
