Steps to prepare white sauce pasta recipe Italian style
To prepare this creamy cheesy white sauce pasta first up we boil the pasta.
I have taken 2 cups of pasta. This is penne pasta which is very easily available in the market if you want you can use any other shape of pasta you want. This is around 200 grams.
To boil this in a large pot I’ve taken about 5 to 6 cups of water for boiling and so while it is boiling I am going to add and mix some salt and half a teaspoon of oil.
As it starts boiling, we’ll add in the pasta and mix it a little. It’s very important that you need to keep in mind is that to add the salt at this point only, then only it will absorb the flavor of the salt otherwise if you forget the salt in the pasta here then pasta may become a little bland.
Don’t add too much oil while boiling the pasta because if you add too much oil over the pasta it will not coat the sauce easily.
let it boil for about 7 to 8 minutes until it’s cooked up to 80%, which means it should still have some resistance. Let this boil over medium flame only. So it’s been almost 7 minutes. If just remove one pasta, cut this and check, it forms a slight white ring on top you can see this is the perfect stage
Before remove the pasta we’ll cook it further in that white cheesy sauce.
so now we are going to strain the past and to stop the carry-over cooking, we will put some more water on top of this. Then wash it under the running water for about 2-3 minutes to stop carryover cooking.
Once that is done we will keep it aside and let it strain further and you can just spread it a bit and if you want to use this pasta later then you can also sprinkle some oil over it and then can use it later.
Next up in a pan I’m going to add 2 teaspoons of oil over the medium flame If you want you can also use some olive oil or butter here instead.
once that is healed, we will add 1 teaspoon of garlic which is finely chopped and let it fry for about 30 to 40 seconds or until its rawness goes away.
Once the garlic is nicely fried then I’m going to add in one onion which I’ve roughly chopped like this and let it also cook for about one to two minutes or until it’s slightly translucent.
So let it cook for about 2 minutes and we will be using more onions as we are going to add the other vegetable too. we don’t want it to turn very dark.
Now I’m going to add the rest of the vegetables so it goes one small carrot which is chopped and half a capsicum cut into cubes like in the picture.
Add a handful of boiled corns you can add more or less as per your taste and cook these vegetables just for about two more minutes so that they slightly turned up and they should still retain its crunch.
Here you can add any vegetable that you like and you can simply skip the ones you don’t. And also if you want you can also add some mushrooms or paneer if you like too at this point.
These vegetables are tossed enough for almost 2-3 minutes and we don’t want to overcook them. so make it very soft.
Nexy we add some salt, half a teaspoon of black pepper powder and mix that as well. Then switch off the flame and we’ll keep this aside by now.
white sauce for pasta(pasta cream)
To prepare the white sauce in a pan over medium flame I am going to take 4 tablespoons of butter. let it heat over medium flame and to this four tablespoons of butter.
I am going to add in 4 tablespoons of maida that is all-purpose flour. so this is the regular salted butter which I am using if you want you can also use the unsalted one if you like.
After mixing the maida keep tossing it over low to medium flame for 3-4 minutes or till the rawness of the method i.e the flour goes away and it will also change its color slightly to peel. so keep doing this over low flame.
only keep tossing it because make sure it won’t turn this very dark. one thing you have to keep in mind is that you have to continuously keep tossing this mixture over low flame only.
one more tip here is that the ratio of the butter and the meta is the same in the recipe, so we used 4 tablespoons of butter and for that, I have used 4 tablespoons of Maida this way you will get the perfect creamy sauce.
So after about 4 minutes, we can check if the color of the maida has changed to pale slightly. so at this point of time I’ll start adding the milk.
So now we’ll start adding the milk gradually I mean we have to add the milk a little at a time and start mixing the mixture otherwise if you’ll stop mixing then it will form lumps in it.
so keep mixing it all while adding the milk so here I’m adding two cups of milk for that four tablespoons of maida so keep doing this and mixing it and soon you will see the mixture becoming slightly thicker.
If you want you can also use a whisk in between to break that lumps if any so it comes down to very smooth and creamy base.
After mixing it for about three to four minutes you can see the mixture becoming little thicker and all the lumps are gone I’ll show you this is how it looks. at this point of time we’ll add in some salt, half a teaspoon of black pepper powder, half a teaspoon of red chili flakes and half a teaspoon of mixed herb seasoning this.
All the seasonings and masalas are available in the market easily. Mix that as well with the base and keep cooking the sauce further for another 3-4 minutes until it’s cooked through over the low flame.
Now how to judge that this is the right stage to put in the pasta whether the sauce is prepared or not so one tip I would like to give you here whenever you put your spoon in the sauce and when it is coating the back of the spoon this way means it’s the perfect coating consistency.
It’s neither too runny nor too thick it’s a perfect coating consistency that’s the right state you can put your pasta. once that stage comes I am going to add in the prepared vegetables along with the boiled pasta.
And we’ll mix everything really well with the help of a spatula until all the vegetables and the pasta are nicely coated with the white sauce so let it cook further for about two to three more minutes so that it absorbs all the flavors of the sauce and if you find your sauce to be very thick at this point of time, you can add 2 to 3 tablespoons of milk or water to exist the consistency.
So it’s been almost 2 minutes I am cooking over medium flame we don’t have to cook it too much also otherwise your pasta will be over boiled and it will break apart in it this thing you have to keep in mind you have to cook the pasta just enough for 2 to 3 minutes so that it’s fully cooked also but not overcooked
Next, I am going to put in my favorite ingredient that is cheese so here I’m adding 3 to 4 tablespoons of vegan cheese. you can add more or less cheese by your preference.
so now the cheese is also nicely melted it I’ll just show you the consistency this is how it looks each and every person is completely coated with that cheesy white sauce pasta is looks really flavorful, mouth-watering, and tempting you can serve it hot while serving only you can make out how beautiful and creamy it has come out.
but all the vegetables are nicely cooked and White sauce pasta recipe Italian style is ready now.
