White Sauce Pasta

Wishing all the kids "Happy Children's Day" in advance. Hope you have lots of fun and frolic.

Here is a recipe that all kids would love for a snack or in their lunch box. Adding loads of veggies makes this pasta healthy. I have also replaced maida/plain flour with corn flour as I find this easier to handle.


for Pasta :

2 onions, chopped finely
3 to 5 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
Capsicum (green, yellow and red) – 1/2 cup, finely chopped
Mushrooms (chopped) - 1/2 cup (optional)
Broccoli (chopped) - 1/4 cup
White Sauce – 3 tbsps
Pasta – 2 cups uncooked
Olive oil – 2 tsp
Cheese grated – ¼ cup
Italian pasta seasoning or mixed herbs - a generous pinch

for white sauce :

2 cups milk
2 tablespoons corn flour
1/2 grated processed cheese 


1) Boil 5-6 cups of water with a teaspoon of oil and salt.

2) Add Pasta and once it is cooked drain out the water and keep the pasta aside.

3) Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan. Add onion, garlic and cook till light brown.

4) Add capsicum, mushrooms, broccoli and salt. Cook for 5- 10 minutes.  

5) Add white sauce and simmer for 2 -3 minutes. Add little water or milk if required.

6) Add cooked pasta and mix thoroughly. You can add more white sauce if you like a creamier pasta. 

7) For the white sauce, mix cornflour with milk thoroughly. Heat this in a pan and when it starts thickening, add grated cheese and mix thoroughly. Bring this mixture to a boil on a slow flame and your white sauce is ready.
