Pasta is a staple food in Italy. It is made out of Durum Wheat. Durum means hard and it is made from the hardest wheat. Depending on its shape, it can be called as macroni, penne, fusilli, Spaghetti and so on..
Pasta with white sauce is the favourite one for my husband. He likes white sauce than red sauce. I learnt this recipe from one of my cousins. Tried her recipe with a slight alteration. I used Fusilli Pasta to make this recipe. Pasta is cooked and is enrobed in creamy, freshly made white sauce. Here I used only Sweet corn kernels. You can also use Broccoli, Red and Yellow Bell pepper. This is Kids favourite…. And of course mine.
