White Sauce Pasta Recipe / Spaghetti in White Sauce Recipe

I have made so many versions of pasta and shared it her. But i haven't shared the basic white sauce pasta so far. I was quite surprised. Finally i made it few weeks back and up with the post. 

This pasta dish is so easy to make and can be made in less than 10 mins. The time it gets to cook the pasta is what you need to make the sauce. It is that easy. I have another version of white sauce pasta which i will share soon. Keep checking it..

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 10 mins
Serves : 1 to 2


Pasta - 100 grams ( I used linguine)
Unsalted Butter - 2 tblspn
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 tblspn
Milk - 1 cup + more as you need
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Sugar - 1/4 tsp
Oregano - 1/2 tsp
Chilli Flakes - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Cheese - 1/2 cup grated ( i used parmesan)


Start by cooking the pasta. Bring lots of salted water to a boil. Add in pasta and cook as per package directions Drain and set aside.

When the pasta is cooking, start the sauce. Melt down butter in a pan. add in all purpose flour and mix well. Stir for few mins till the raw smell leaves away.

Now add in milk and keep mixing. Cook this till it gets thick.

Now add in salt, sugar. chilli flakes, pepper and oregano. mix well. 

Add in cheese and mix. Sauce done.

Now toss pasta in the sauce and serve with a extra grating of cheese..

Take all your ingredients..As you see, you just need a handful of ingredients

Start by melting down the butter

once the butter is melted

add in all purpose flour

Cook for 2 mins on low heat till you get rid of the flouriness from the mix

slowly add in milk while you keep mixing

it will get thick

look at that..

now add in salt and pepper..I like to add a pinch of sugar as well

Now add in chilli flakes and oregano..

mix well..

Finally add in any of your favorite cheese..I added some grated parmesan..

Mix well..Sauce done..

Now get your pasta done..I used linguine, you can use spaghetti

Bring lots of water to a boil

add a good amount of salt

drop in the pasta

let it get cooked

now it is cooked

drain it
immediately toss the hot pasta into the sauce

mix well

plate it up

sprinkle with some parmesan and chilli flakes, serve hot
