Notes

  • If you want to add cheese add in the final stage . After the vegetables and pasta is cooked for few minutes you can finally add the grated cheese give it a quick stir and remove from heat. This will ensure that the cheese blends thoroughly and delicious cheesy pasta is ready.
  • The white sauce thickens as it turns cold so it is best to serve when it is hot.
  • If you need plain white sauce skip garlic. But I would suggest adding as it enhances the taste of the pasta.
