Farfalle Pasta in White Sauce - Recipe

Farfalle pasta in white sauce

The chill winter outside makes me carve for something hot . Pasta is simple and easy Italian dish which can be normally had as dinner or break time munch.  I love the different shapes of pasta. Different pasta's in bottles simply makes the kitchen beautiful.  I like the basic tomato pasta sauce tossed with any pasta which i used to store normally. Mithu loves more of the white sauce preparation.

Mithu is very choosy in having vegetables and so i have to find out ways to make her intake some veggies. I added mushroom here which blends well with white sauce. Any pasta can be used with this sauce.  I had the basic white sauce recipe which i got long back from a cooking channel and modified a bit to suit our taste.

  • Instead of cream cheese you can also add Parmesan cheese which makes it even more rich.  
  • This is a medium sauce and for thin sauce reduce the butter and flour to 1 tblsp, keeping the cup of milk same.
  • Veggies can be of your choice, still mushroom & broccoli  blends well with white sauce. 
  • Add little milk and break the lumps completely and then add rest of the milk.
  • Garlic gives a good flavor so don't miss it.
  • Don't cook the pasta for long time then it will turn out  mushy.
