An easy recipe of penne pasta with white sauce. Let's start to make this easy and quick recipe with simple step-by-step process. 

Ingredients :

Pasta - 1 cup (I used penne pasta variety)

For Italian White Sauce

Milk - 1 and 1/2 cups
Maida(All Purpose Flour) - 1 tbsp heaped

Sliced Onion - 1 no
Sweet Corn - 1/4 cup boiled
Capsicum - 2 tbsp
Cheese - 2 tbsp grated (any)
Butter - 1 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Oregano - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste

Preparation Method :

Cooking the pasta:

It’s the same method for any pasta.

1. Heat water in a cooking pot and bring to a boil. Add salt & oil to season the pasta.

2. Add the pasta and let it cook it for 8-10 minutes (you can check it if you suspect it is done by taking one out with a fork – the pasta shells should be soft enough to pinch and cut open but not mushy or mash-able).

3. Turn off the heat & drain pasta well in a bowl. Place the drained pasta in the running cold water to stop the cooking process. You could add a few drops of oil and toss-up the pasta if you feel it might stick together.

Making the Italian White Sauce & Veggies:

1. In a pan, heat a tsp of oil saute the veggies for 2 mins, Set aside. 

2. Heat butter in a pan when it starts to melt.

3. Add maida, 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.

4. Whisk it well. Now add milk and keep stirring. Keep stirring until the mixture becomes slight thick and creamy. Cook in a low flame and keep stirring to avoid lumps. Add required salt, oregano and pepper powder.

5. Toss the pasta with white sauce and saute vegetables, cook for a couple of minutes and then turn off the heat. Add grated cheese, then cooked pasta and give a quick mix. Switch off the flame.

Tips & Tricks:

* You can use any variety of pasta for this. I used Penne Pasta.

* 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.

* While serving add little grated cheese for extra richness and yumminess :) Sprinkle oregano while serving.

Happy Cooking & Enjoy !!
