R u among those who love their white sauce, I for one don’t belong to that group, I love my pastas in a tomato sauce in a spicier version. This one is for my daughter who loves cheese and pasta. So for the Cheese lovers guys do try this out….most of you will be already familiar with this classic dish but here goes the recipe for the newbies.
Penne Pasta In White Sauce.
1 tbsp butter + 1/2 tsp butter
1 tbsp Cornflour
11/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Del Monte Penne Pasta
Salt to taste
Crushed pepper 1/2 tsp
Italian Seasoning 1 tsp
Cheddar Cheese 2 Slices
American Corn 4 tbsp
Capsicum 1 small chopped
White Sauce In Making
Cook Pasta as per instructions given on the pack , Boil loads of water in a pan, add the pasta and 1 tsp oil and cook till al-dent.
Prepare white sauce while the pasta is cooking.
Heat 1/2 tsp butter in a pan, add corn and capsicum and saute for a minute. Transfer to a bowl.
Heat the remaining butter in a pan , add cornflour and stir continuously till u feel that it is cooked.
While stirring continuously add milk slowly and whisk nicely so that no lumps are formed.
let cook till it comes to a boil.
Add Salt, pepper and the Italian seasoning and the cheese slice as well.
Add the corn and capsicum at stage.
Add the cooked pasta and mix everything nicely.
Cook again for 3-4 mins so that the flavours of the sauce is imbibed by the pasta.
You can replace the penne with any variety of pasta.
Italian seasoning is a mix of different herbs which contain oregano n Chilli flakes.
I have used Cheddar Cheese, but u can also try a combo of 2 or 3 different types of cheese as well.
You can also bake this mixture, i had tried it once but my kiddo dint like it much so I don’t do it.
To Prepare baked version , once the Pasta is cooked in the white sauce, transfer the mixture to a baking pan and sprinkle cheese all over the top. Bake it for 15 mins at 180c.
I personally felt that it had become to dry. Do try this out as well.
