Pasta in White Sauce

Well, the brat loved it, so I thought why not share the joy in the blog!

For white sauce:

2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp flour (I used maida)
2 cups milk (add more depending on the consistency that you want)
salt and pepper to taste
Italian seasoning (optional, I used the small sachet from Pizza hut/Corner, whatever)

Thinly sliced vegetables (Red/green/yellow bell peppers, onions) - less than 2 cups
Pasta -200 gms
Cheese - for topping the pasta

Serves - 3 children

1. Cook pasta as per pack instructions. I cooked it a little softer, so that it is easy for the baby also to eat.
2. Drain pasta and keep aside.
3. Add butter to kadai and melt it.
4. Add flour and mix well.
5. Add milk little by little and whisk with ladle till the paste is smooth. Add more milk if you want the sauce runny.
6. Add salt and pepper and the seasoning.
7. Stir-fry vegetables.
8. Add the sauce and pasta to the veggies.
9. Grate cheese over it.

Serve and let the creamy yummy pasta work its magic.

this is slurpalicious :D. Pity I'm lactose intolerant, or I'll probably make some right now!

suki, try replacing milk with vegetable broth or chicken stock if you like, and cheese is supposed to be very low in lactose. so you could put a nice potion of that.
