Hi Everyone,

Today's Recipe is Italian style creamy white sauce pasta, and this is one of my favorite pasta too, easy to make and tossed in veggies it's nutritious too. Pasta is a staple of Italian cuisine but is equally loved in India and all over the world too. Usually, pasta is cooked in two types of sauces, either red sauce pasta or white sauce pasta. Today I have prepared it with white sauce. White sauce has a very delicate and creamy flavor. It also has milk which has calcium and protein. To make pasta more nutritious, I have added more vegetables to assimilate micronutrients(vitamins and minerals). A single serving of white sauce pasta has about 222 calories.
          Pasta is a perfect source for healthy, nutritious and appealing meals, pasta is eaten with nutrient dense food, such as fiber packed vegetables, antioxidant packed tomato sauce and protein packed cheeses that are white sauce.
