I had posted the recipe of Vegetables in White Sauce few weeks back. I had mentioned then that the white sauce idea was from Nita Mehta's book. Once in a week I prepare pasta at home. I thought of trying the same sauce for pasta this time. I prepared the pasta with this white sauce and it tasted very yummy. I like to have more sauce while having pasta. If you want less sauce, adjust the quantity accordingly. I have used whole wheat Penne pasta here, which is very healthy and high in fibre.
What you need?
2 cups Pasta
1 Onion chopped
1 Bell pepper chopped
2 tsp Oil
For White Sauce:
1/2 of an Onion, finely chopped
1/4 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
1 tbsp Wheat flour
1-2 tsp chopped Coriander leaves
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Red chilli flakes
1/2 tsp Pepper
3/4 cup Milk
1 tsp Tomato ketchup
How to prepare?
Cook pasta according to packet directions.(Add few drops of oil in the boiling water if you desire, so that the pasta won't be sticky.)
Heat oil in a pan. Saute onions until they turn pink. Add bellpepper and stir fry until they are cooked. Now add the cooked pasta and mix well. Sprinkle some salt, pepper and the italian seasoning. Mix thoroughly and keep this aside.
Take all the ingredients under For White Sauce in a bowl. Whisk it so as to get a smooth paste. In a pan, add this mixture, cook on a medium flame. Stir continously until a thick sauce like consistency is obtained. Add the pasta to this. Mix well.Serve immediately. The sauce can become very thick and dry if kept for long.
Before serving, if you desire sprinkle cheese on top and microwave until cheese melts.
