RECIPE NOTES & TIPS:
Since pasta needs to be in a sauce for a couple of minutes, make sure it is cooked al dente and not overcooked.
You can see that there is no special sauce for this recipe, juices from vegetables are sufficient in this case, but if you want to make a creamier dish you can add heavy cream. That addition will make this recipe less healthier but more creamier.
