Pasta sauce – Red sauce and white sauce -Recipe with video

The very first time I was introduced to pasta by a friend after coming to Singapore 4 years back. When she was talking to me, she was telling that she made pasta for dinner and when i asked about her the recipe she told that she always makes with store bought pasta sauce. So i followed the same way and made for kids and they liked that very much. Now after few years I am so bored with this store bought pasta sauce and wanted to make on my own. The tomato based sauce i learnt from a friend and for the white sauce i followed the recipe from Tarla Dalal.
Check out how i made veg pasta recipe using this home made pasta sauce recipe.
