Recipe Notes for White Sauce Pasta

  1. This is one method of making the pasta in white sauce. Another method is to saute the vegetables and keeping them aside, preparing the white sauce recipe and then tossing everything together. This technique is also ideal when you are cooking pasta for guests or during a party. Our website also has a recipe for Jain White Sauce
  2. White sauce pasta will continue to thicken as it cools down. So best would be to relish the white pasta while they are still hot. But if eating later, while reheating the vegetable white sauce pasta, you can add a little milk or cream to give rich and saucy texture.
  3. Use only 1 cup pasta if you like more sauce in your pasta. Similarly, you can add more vegetables to make it more nutritious.

For cooking the Fusilli Pasta

  1. For boiling the fusilli pasta perfectly for Pasta In White Sauce, boil enough water in a large pan. If you use a small pan, the pasta will clump together on boiling
  2. Cover the pan with a lid to make the water boil faster.
  3. Once the water boils vigorously, add salt to taste. The salt will season the fusilli pasta as they cook, which will give you flavorful pasta. Also, the water when tasted should taste like sea water
  4. Add the pasta to the boiling water and stir once. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally and gently until the pasta is tender. Cooking times may vary with the size and the thickness of the pasta. Very small pasta (like macaroni, fusilli, conchiglie, penne) may cook in 5 to 7 minutes. Larger shapes (like spaghetti, fettuccine, dried lasagne sheets) may require 10 to 12 minutes. Refer the package instructions to understand the exact cooking time.
  5. After 5 to 7 minutes, remove one pasta out of the water and keep it aside to cool a little. Bite into the pasta or break it with a fork to check if it's still hard in the center or if it's cooked as you like. For perfectly cooked pasta, cook until it's al dente, which means it is a little firm in the center.
  6. Immediately drain the cooked pasta into a sieve or colander.
  7. Transfer to a bowl of cold water or refresh under running water to prevent over cooking.
  8. Drain again and keep aside. If the pasta is not to be used immediately, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to it and toss it. Though it makes difficult for pasta to absorb/coat the white sauce.

Preparation for Pasta In White Sauce

  1. For making the Pasta In White Sauce recipe, wash and cut the capsicum and bell pepper in strips.
  2. Without peeling, slice the zucchini and keep aside.
  3. Clean a broccoli head and cut it into florets. In a microwave safe bowl, take the broccoli with some water.Microwave on HIGH for 7 minutes.
  4. Similarly, transfer the baby corn in another bowl, add water. If you have sweet corn kernels, then you can even use those.Microwave on HIGH for 7 minutes.
  5. In a deep bowl, take milk. We have used regular cow's milk. You can use any low-fat or high-fat milk.
  6. Add the plain flour and salt. Refined flour will act as a thickening agent and help in reducing (thickening) the white sauce.
  7. Whisk well till no lumps remain. Keep aside.

How To Make Pasta In White Sauce

  1. For preparing the  Pasta In White Sauce, heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan. You can also make use of 1 part of olive oil and one part of butter.
  2. Add garlic and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds. To make Jain white sauce pasta, skip adding the garlic.
  3. Add the yellow capsicum strip. Also, you can chop them in cubes or triangular pieces.
  4. Add the green capsicum.
  5. Add the red capsicum strip. If all three are not available, you can add any one or two.
  6. Add the zucchini. Also, you can make use of yellow squash.
  7. Add the broccoli. You can use any veggies like carrots, green peas, french beans or mushrooms.
  8. Add the baby corn.
  9. Sauté on a medium flame for 1 more minute. Since they have been blanched previously there is no need to cook them much.
  10. Add the milk-plain flour mixture.
  11. Add the chilli flakes. The quantity can be adjusted as per your liking.
  12. Add the mixed herbs. If you do not have mixed herbs then you can simply add dried oregano or dried basil/thyme whatever is easily available.
  13. Add the cheese. Processed cheese can be substituted with cheese slice or cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese.
  14. Add little salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring continuously. We have added salt while boiling the pasta, butter and cheese both contain salt so, add it accordingly.
  15. Add the fusilli pasta. You can even make use of penne or macaroni pasta whose hollow spaces will be filled with the cheesy white sauce making it a delectable meal.
  16. Mix gently and cook Pasta In White Sauce on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while tossing gently. Our creamy White Sauce Pasta is ready!
