MUSHROOM PASTA IN WHITE SAUCE| EASY PASTA RECIPES

Pasta-in white sauce
LAst month when we celebrated my daughter's birthday, we took her and her few friends for bowling and followed by a lunch in Pasta Mania here. Somehow me and my hubby don't prefer pizza huts or pasta mania now a days. But as kids love those outlets once in a while we take them. We both munched on a pasta and kids enjoyed pizza, pasta and cold drinks. My helper who also joined us, ordered for al funghi for her. As soon as it came, she told me to take little from that as it was bit more for her. I was bit hesitant as i always feel pasta in white sauce will be very heavy. But the blogger in me was so active !!. And i tasted it. Last week i bought mushrooms and made it for her. The taste was very similar to the one we tasted in PAsta mania. Check out my homemade pasta sauce recipe too
