well for some white sauce pasta recipe might be familiar, but for many, it may not be a known recipe. especially with many indians, pasta means a red coloured pasta. in addition, these pasta has to be spicy, savoury or in other words, it has to be chatpata in taste. well, the pasta recipe in white sauce may not tick all those boxes but does satisfy the cheesy and creaminess taste. having said that, i have added a generous amount of chilli flakes, black pepper and mixed herbs which should satisfy those requirements. however i have tried to keep it mild, hence do not overdo it by adding it more. the essence and crux of this recipe is cheesy and creamy which makes it unique.

furthermore, before wrapping up the recipe, i would like to add few tips, suggestions and variations to pasta recipe in white sauce. firstly, the white sauce is made with plain flour or maida, in combination with milk and spices. hence once the sauce is rested it may thicken and may have to adjust the consistency by adding water. secondly, with respect to adding veggies, it is completely open-ended and may add as per your preference. having said that you have to chop these veggies finely so that it gets cooked quickly. lastly, this recipe tastes great when made with penne pasta, macaroni, rigatoni and fusilli. do not try with spaghetti, lasagne or orzo as it may get dissolved in the sauce and maybe a disaster.
