Couple of months back we have been to GRT Buffet ! There i tasted this Pasta in white sauce with some veggies ! It was super duper ! i have only one concern they added more butter ! its not pasta in white sauce , it is pasta in butter sauce ! 😉
So i tried my hands at home ! it came out very well ! me and my mother were licking our fingers though we finished it ! Adding veggies ESP mushroom and green peas is awesome its well blend with butter so taste is awesome ! so try it ! weight watchers always u can replace it with wheat pasta and Olive oil ! also Take immediately hot pasta is too good !
Boiled Green peas – 1/4 cup
onion – 1 no finely chopped
Mushroom – 1/2 cup cleaned and finely chopped
Green chilly – 1 no
salt – as required
Olive oil + butter – 2 tbsp
Pasta – 100 ml boiled with req amt of salt (any variety can be used prefer penne and spiral)
Pepper powder – to top up
To make white sauce
Butter – 1 tbsp
APF – 1tbsp (all purpose flour or maida)
luke watm Milk – 1 cup
Heat the kadai and add the olive oil once heat add the onion saute till it changes it colors and add the cleaned mushroom and saute till it shrinks now add the boiled green peas and saute well so that every thing mix well ! keep it in low flame for 5 minutes , once cooked , off the flame and transfer it other bowl !
Now heat the kadai and add the butter once melts add the APF and saute and add the milk and mix well and make sure its not forming the lumps ! add the sauted vegetables and mix well and then transfer the boiled pasta ! mix well ! let it get mixed with white sauce and mixed vegetables this wll take 5 minutes and off the flame !
Serve HOT !top up with pepper powder yummy Pasta !
- You can even add other veggies like carrot , brocoli
- Tomato wont work !
- Weight watchers can replace the pasta with wheat pasta also instead of butter they can go for Olive oil itself
AS deep Iyer suggested!
- You can add some grated cheese. A hint of pepper and garlic to the white sauce is brilliant. You’d need to saute it until the raw smell of the APF goes off. The milk should be luke warm. Alternatively, you can mix the APF in a bit of warm milk so there are no lumps.
- Preferred to use penne pasta as the sauce will go through the tubes and mix well.
- Use tri colored capsicum, slice in thin strips, oven roast with some rock salt, and add to pasta. Yummness! 🙂
