Mushroom Broccoli Carbonara Pasta

Pasta served with brocolli and Mushrooms tossed in Carbonara Sauce


Mushroom Brocolli Carbonara Pasta
Pasta the Italian food is favorite for everyone of all ages. Here I have tried this pasta with homemade carbonara sauce adding broccoli and mushrooms to it. Broccoli being high in vitamin C and dietery fibre is a very good food for people of all ages. It has high anti-cancer properties. But make sure that u do not cook brocolli more than a couple of minutes so that not to loose all the good properties. Mushrooms are low calorie food with vitamin B and essential minerals. Combining broccoli and mushroom with the favorite pasta will make your food more healthier and enjoyable. Try making this Carbonara sauce at home and enjoy ur pasta
