This was another one of those moments in the kitchen where I had something on my mind but wasn’t too sure how it was going to turn out, flavour-wise. But I’m glad that this worked out. Everything just complimented each other and the family, especially the kids loved it.  You can serve this with any pasta you like or rice even and any meat of your choice.

Quick Instructions

  1. Get you carrots (500g carrots, chopped into chunks), green peppers (1 green pepper, cut into julienne strips) , onions (1 onion, sliced into rings)  and butternuts (1kg butternut, chopped into big cubes) ready.
