Creamy pasta

I like tomato based pasta the spicy one. But if it is for kids or party I prefer this type of pasta. Kids love the white creamy color with here and there colored veggies.

If the veggies are stir fried in pan the color of vegetable reduces. So I use microwave method. You can add more cheese if kids love.


Ingredients:

Pasta - 2 cups (any shape)
Broccoli - 1/4 cup
Carrot - 1/4 cup
Mixed color bell peppers - 1/4 cup
Milk - 2 cups
Olive oil - 4 tsp
All purpose flour - 2 tsp
Pepper and salt - as per taste
Italian seasoning - 1 tsp
Parmesan cheese - 2 tbsp



Method:

Boil the pasta as per package instruction. Chop the veggies. Combine all the veggies and microwave for 2 minutes. Microwaving the vegetables will help to have its color.

In a large skillet with 4 tsp of oil add some Italian seasoning and all purpose flour and fry for a minute. Do not burn or change the color of flour. Add milk slowly, stirring continuously to avoid lumps. Add pepper and salt after thickened.

After the sauce is ready add the cooked pasta and veggies. Add paramesan cheese if needed.

I love pasta. I prepare in the same way and use milk to bring the creaminess to the pasta. Love the pictures.

Great idea putting all those veggie chunks in there to get some more nutrients in there. Also, this does not look as heavy as the standard mac n cheese which is a good thing. Great recipe!
