Pasta In White Sauce

Pasta In White Sauce

If you have notice in most of my pasta recipes I use tomato sauce.  I hardly make white sauce for pasta but when I do once in a blue moon then it has to be this way, I add little of garlic which adds nice flavor and onion for crunch.  You can add any seasoning but I like to add italian seasoning which adds good aroma and flavor to the dish.  If you want to make simple and quick pasta or for kids then this is for you. 

Before moving over to recipe, Wishing all readers Happy Raksha Bandan, hope you guys have great day celebrating it and receive good gifts :D.  If you are still unsure what to do on this wonderful day then check my Rakhi Events rounds here  to get some ideas. 


Serves - 2
Ingredients:

Pasta - 1 1/2 Cups [ I used tri colour fusili]
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Water - For Boiling

For White Sauce 
Butter/Olive Oil - 1 tbsp
Garlic Pod- 1 [ optional]
Onion - 1/2 [optional]
All Purpose Flour - 1 tbsp
Milk - 1 Cup
Italian Seasoning - 1 tsp
Salt & Pepper - To Taste




Method:

1. Boil water in a large pot add salt, oil and pasta and cook until pasta gets cooked but not over cooked.  Follow the instruction on pack.
~ I used here tri colour fusili to bring colours to dish :D 

2. Drain pasta in a colander and rinse it under tap water, keep aside.  Meanwhile we can work on the sauce. 


3. Chop garlic and onion.  In a pan melt butter in slow flame, add chopped garlic and saute for 30 seconds.  Add onion and sauce for a minute (all this have to be done in slow flame).  Add plain flour mix well and saute for a minute, take care not to burnt it.


4. Now add milk, use a whisk to blend everything together, this also avoids any lumps.  Simmer in slow flame until sauce becomes thick for around 2 minutes. 


5. Add pasta, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning and stir gently.  Cook in flow flame for a minutes or until pasta n sauce comes together. 
~ You can add some parmesan cheese for nice chessy taste, kids will love that.


Serve hot/warm with soup and salad of your choice.  It's good to have the pasta while it's still warm as cold it doesn't taste good, at least I feel that.


If you are going to eat pasta later or have left over then add 1-2 tbsp of milk or water and heat it for 2 minutes or microwave for 1 minute before eating.   I'm happy to send this to Lubna's Joy from fasting to feasting IV.


Have a nice day ~~
