PASTA IN WHITE SAUCE | PASTA RECIPES

Pasta is a most welcoming dish at my home and i generally make it with Home made Sauce and usually pack it for kids lunch box or sometimes for weeknight Dinner too. Usually i make pasta in  this way but my kiddos love the pasta in white sauce too. Most of the times i make it either for lunch box or dinner and i couldn’t click the pictures, but two days back i made Penne pasta in White sauce and gave them for evening tiffin after they are back from school. Normally i try to include little bit of veggies in this as they will not fuss eating veggies if i put them in pasta.

  25. Hi,
    Can you confirm what kind of olive oil to use in this? Is it always extra virgin or the normal one is acceptable for cooking? Your response could help me!! Thanks in advance!
