Pasta in White Sauce

Nehal likes pasta which is usually prepared as an evening tiffin or dinner for him. By no means, do I claim to prepare authentic Italian pasta but more often than not you will find a desi twist to my pasta. :)

I think pasta is a great way to use left over cooked vegetables or meat. There are numerous varieties that I prepare using left over curries or stir fries. If you have chopped mixed vegetables lying in your fridge, use them to create a creamy pasta like I did with this recipe.
