Long smooth and silky pieces of Penne pasta smeared in a cream-based and luscious white sauce, blessed with traces of garlic and veggies is all you need to sate your weekend cravings to the fullest. Growing up as a kid, I always tried experimenting with the white sauce recipe until I finally achieved the right-delicious one, so here I am back with my another droolworthy ‘spoon-licking’ delicious ‘White Sauce Pasta’ recipe that I made recently and enjoyed devouring it with my fam.
Just a quick note, adding veggies are completely optional, I love adding colorful Bell Peppers and some corn to my Pasta mainly because its white sauce and it can taste pretty bland and nothing if there are no veggies albeit it is on you but, I most definitely suggest adding some vegetables, it overall balances the taste and you’ll enjoy it. So kids, eat your veggies with this delicious Pasta recipe that I’m about to share with you all.
