Creamy pasta with white sauce

Another wonderful day coming to an end....Although summers are over and fall is here, the weather in California is almost the same through out the year....To make the most of the wonderful Saturday, we headed towards Universal studios , once again....
We had a three day pass to universal studios and this was our second visit.........The park was all geared up for the Halloween...There were zombie dummies all around and they were even hosting a horror night show.....We ,not being a very big fan of the horrifying stuff opted out of the show....
Bhavye was happy to revisit King Kong and Simpsons.....He had a blast at the Curious Goerge and came out of the water only after they announced that they were closing  the park....He was very disappointed last time as he could not go to the water park because we were not carrying a cloth change for him....So this time we made sure to do that....




Yesterday I made this Pasta for lunch and both Mohit and Bhavye liked it a lot.........It's very creamy and flavorful and the addition of a lot of veggies makes it a healthy option for a meal......
All you need is

Pasta- 2cups{any pasta of your choice...I used Fusilli}
Butter-2 tbsp
All purpose flour-11\2 tbsp
Milk-11\2 cup
Oregano-1\2 tsp
Chili flakes-1 tsp
Veggies of your choice- 1 cup{ I used broccoli, cauliflower, peas, corn and carrots }
Garlic-4-5 cloves{finely chopped }
Salt
Mozzarella cheese-1 cup{grated}
Method of preparation

For white sauce

In a pan, add 11\2 tbsp butter
Add flour
Fry for a minute
Remove from heat and add the milk
Add salt
Heat again for 3-4 minutes till a thick sauce is formed

For veggies

In a pan, add 1\2 tbsp butter
When the butter is hot, add garlic
Fry till garlic is golden brown
Add the veggies and salt and cover and cook for 5 minutes

For pasta

heat water in a pan
Add 1 tbsp salt to water
When the water starts boiling ,add pasta
Cook till pasta is done
Strain and cool under running water
keep aside


In a bowl, add pasta and cover with veggies and white sauce
Sprinkle cheese on top and microwave for 5 minutes
Sprinkle oregano and chili flakes on top


Mohit got some fresh baguette from a near by store and we had an awesome Italian lunch.....Bhavye also enjoyed his pasta and has made me promise to make it again soon...:)
