White sauce paste recipe |Penne Pasta in white sauce

I love italian cuisine .I normally have pasta or macaroni at home when i want something easy and not too time consuming. this recipe of vegetable pasta in white sauce get made at home often and is liked by everyone.

you can use your choice of veggies in the pasta like  baby corn, carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms and potatoes .I have not added the veegies as i was not in a mood to chop the same

I have used penne pasta but you can use any variety of your liking.


Pasta - 1 cup (I used penne pasta variety)
Milk - 1 and 1/2 cups
Maida(All Purpose Flour) - 1 tbsp heaped
Carrot - 1 small chopped finely
Sweet Corn - 1/4 cup boiled (i had not used )
Capsicum - 2 tbsp finely chopped (i had not used )
carrots cubed - 1/4 cup (i had not used )
Cheese - 2 tbsp grated
Butter - 1 tbsp
Chilli flakes - 1/2 tsp (adjust as per your taste)
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Oregano/mixed herbs - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste

1.Cook pasta with enough water along with a tsp of olive oil and salt.Follow instructions on the pasta cover.Drain and Set can sprinkle a few drops of oil and gently toss them.

 drain the pasta

2.In a pan - heat a tsp of oil saute the veggies for 2mins,Set aside.
3.Heat butter in a pan when it starts to melt add maida.With a hand whisk,Whisk it well.Now add milk and keep stirring. Keep stirring until the mixture becomes slight thick and creamy.

4.Cook in low medium flame and keep stirring to avoid lumps. Add required salt.Add oregano and pepper powder.keep stirring till  the white sauce becomes thick, creamy and coats the laddle.

5.Next add the sauted vegetables, grated cheese, cooked pasta and give a quick mix.Switch off

6.Garnish with some cheese ,Sprinkle oregano  & Serve hot ....Enjoy!!

Tips :
1.Use veggies & pasta of your choice.
2.Make sure to stir continuously to avoid lumps.After maida is added whisk it well and use a whisk to mix after milk is added.
3.White sauce pasta gets dried up quickly so serve it as soon as you cook.If its gets thick and dry then add few tbsp milk and heat it up.
4.While serving add little grated cheese for extra richness and yumminess :)
