1packet Creamy broccoli soup 72 gms nt.wght, that serves 4
1.5 - 2tspCrushed garlic
1mediumCapsicum cut into strips
1/4cupChopped spring onion
5stripsBacon cooked & crumbled (optional)
Oil I used Olive oil
Cook pasta as per package instructions and keep aside.
To make the sauce:
Microwave the milk for 45 seconds. Add the milk and 1 cup water to the soup contents and mix well. Keep it aside.
In a wide pan, heat oil. Add chopped onion & garlic. Cook till onion becomes soft. Add capsicum and cook till it becomes soft.
Add the soup mixture, bring it to boil & simmer. Cook till it becomes slightly thick and reaches a saucy consistency.
Add chilli flakes & chopped spring onion. Mix well.
Add cooked pasta and mix till the pasta is coated well with the sauce. Add crumbled bacon (if using) and mix well. Serve hot.
I used Knorr brand cream of broccoli soup. You can also use cream of mushroom soup. You can add any veggies of your choice like mushroom, broccoli, spinach, zucchini etc; You can also add cooked chicken or sausage to this. I added salt while cooking the pasta. Since the soup mixture has salt, I didnt add extra salt. Do a taste test & add more salt, if required. You can also add fresh fresh herbs like parsley. Since the soup mixture has some herbs in it, I didnt add any. Also, if you prefer a less creamy sauce, use 2 cups of water instead of milk & water. I didnt add any cheese sine the sauce was already creamy & flavorful. However, if you are using only water for the sauce, you can add some cheese in the end. You can make it ahead and store it in the fridge for 1-2 days. I recommend you to reheat it on stove top. While reheating, add 1/4 cup hot milk + 1/4 cup hot water (combine the two) and add to the pasta. It prevents the pasta from becoming dry.
