Fusilli with Roasted Tomato & Basil Pesto is an Italian main-course dish (Entree) comprising of pasta mixed with a sauce called Pesto & garnished with cheese. My hubby & me totally love the classic pesto made using Basil, but a step ahead in combining the basil & roasted tomatoes resulted in even more awesome & yummy pesto.

Broccoli, Mushroom & Bell Peppers in Chilli Garlic Sauce is a Indo-Chinese gravy dish that can be served with Rice/noodles. My hubby & me both love Indo-Chinese food so much that we eat it almost every week. But my taste-buds are super-spoilt so I can easily get bored eating the same noodles/gravy dish every week. That drives me to try something new every time. One such weekend I thought why not try some gravy dish that can go with white rice. I had these three veggies Broccoli, Mushroom & Bell Pepper available so started with them. The final dish turned out so good that I had to share it with you all. I named the sauce Chilli Garlic as I could feel the distinct flavor of garlic & chilli while relishing this gravy.
