Grilled Paneer with Lemon Seasoned Pasta

Pasta Love!!! Another fusion recipe. In the recent past I have shared similar recipes, this time it’s lemon seasoned pasta along with sautéed sweet corn & bell peppers and grilled paneer (Indian cottage cheese). It was simply delicious. Perfect meal to pack for lunch or enjoy in the dinner.

I have seasoned the paneer with Cajun Seasoning, you can try the same or simply use the herbs of your choice.
