Pasta in White Sauce



A very good morning to all the readers!! Today I am going to share White Sauce Pasta recipe. It is a simple and quick recipe which gives yummy macaroni pasta in creamy white sauce with the combination of sauté veggies. I have used Onions, capsicums and sweet corn in the recipe.

You can use or add veggies of your choice like broccoli, olives etc .




List Of Ingredients: (Serves 2)

Pasta- 2 cups
Water-4 cups (For Boiling Pasta)
Garlic Cloves-4
Chopped Onion-1/2 cup
Chopped capsicum-1/4 cup
Boiled Sweet Corn-1/4 cup
Olive Oil-2 tbsp

For White Sauce
Butter-2 tbsp
All Purpose Flour (Maida)-2 tbsp
Milk-2 cups
Salt-1 tsp ( or to taste)
Black Pepper-1 tsp
Crushed/Dried Oregano leaves-2 tsp
Red chilli Flakes-1 tsp
Grated Mozzarella/Processed Cheese-1/4 cup


Steps To Prepare:


Step1:
Pour the water in a pan and let it boil. Add pinch of salt and 1tsp oil to it. Once the water starts boiling, add pasta to it and cover with a lid for 10 minutes. Open the lid in between to stir the pasta so that it does not stick to the bottom.
After 10 minutes, check a piece of pasta by cutting it with a knife. If the pasta has turned soft, it is boiled else let it boil for another 2-3 minutes.



Step2:
Add oil in a frying pan. Add finely chopped garlic. Sauté it for 10-15 seconds. Add chopped onions & capsicums. Sauté them for 4-5 minutes and keep them aside.



Step3:
Heat butter in a pan. I have used here Amul plain salted butter. You can use Amul garlic flavoured butter also.


When it starts to melt, add All Purpose flour or maida to it while continuous stirring so that butter and maida mix together well. 


After that gradually add milk to it with continuous stirring. Do not add all the milk in one go or stop stirring else lumps will form. Keep stirring till the mixture starts boiling and attains sauce like consistency. 



Add salt, black pepper, red chilli flakes and oregano to it. Mix well. 



Step4:
To the above white sauce, add grated cheese. Mix well. The sauce will have the consistency as shown in below video:


 Add sauté veggies and sweet corn. Add boiled pasta now. Mix gently and cover it with a lid for 2 minutes. Grate some more cheese over it if you like. I usually use cheese when I want to bake my pasta :)

Tadaa!! Pasta in White Sauce is ready :D



Below is the pic where I have added lots of grated Mozzarella cheese in the pasta and baked it at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
