Pasta is staple food of Italian cuisine but you know what according to some believes it was bought to Italy from china. Kind of coming from Asian noodles recipe. Interesting isn’t it? Pasta generally are of two types, one is dried pasta and the other one is fresh pasta. Generally in Italian cuisine pasta dough is made with wheat flour and eggs. There are various types of pasta available in the market. There are said to be 350 varieties of pasta available throughout glob.
We generally use dried pasta and make dishes using different sauces. Who doesn’t like pasta. Some people love red sauce pasta and some love white sauce pasta. Everyone loves it. So here it is creamy white sauce pasta recipe.
- Pasta (1 cup)
- Oil (1 tsp to boil pasta)
- Pinch of salt (to boil pasta)
- Carrots (1 small chopped)
- Onions (1 small chopped)
- Baby corns (2/3 chopped)
- Capsicum (1 small chopped) You can use different color capsicum also
- French beans (3/4 chopped)
- Olive oil (1 tbsp)
- Garlic (4/5 cloves chopped)
- Butter (2 tbsp)
- Cheese (2 slices) I have used slice one you can use any cheese of your choice
- Milk (1 cup)
- Maida / all purpose flour (4 tsp)
- Chili flakes as per taste
- Pasta seasoning as per taste
- Salt as per taste
Take pan and put it on the gas. Switch on the gas and add water to pan. Add pinch of salt and oil to it. Let it boil. Once it started boiling add pasta to it. Now let it cook for minutes mentioned on the pasta packet. Generally it takes 10/12 minutes to get cooked. We don’t want to over cook it, just when we break it with spoon it should break without any effort.
Now take a pan and add oil to it. Switch on the gas and let it heat a little. Once hot enough, add garlic to it. Sauté a little and add chopped onions to it. Let the onions get cooked and become transparent in color. Now add chopped vegetables to it and cover the lid. Let them cook for 2/3 minutes. We want to keep the vegetables crunchy. Now take them out of the pan and keep them aside.
Now take a new pan again and switch on the gas flame. Add butter to pan and let it melt. Now add maida / all purpose flour to it. Mix it well so that lumps won’t be formed. Once it is cooked a little and changes color to little, add milk to it. Mix all again properly so that we will get the creamy texture. Slowly it will start thickening so keep string it. If you feel consistency is not as wanted then add milk to it to make it little liquid. Now add salt, red chili flakes and seasoning as per taste to it. Mix them well.
Now add sautéed vegetables to it and mix them well. Add boiled pasta to it and mix it again. Now add cheese slices to it and cover lid. Let the cheese melt and then mix them all nicely.
Your cheesy and creamy pasta is ready!!
