White Sauce & Spinach Spaghetti Pasta

How good it would be to enjoy your pasta without the guilt of it being too unhealthy. I am an avid fan of pasta. But with all the overload of cheese I have to let it go….well kind of.

I like to make my own versions at home. Its like my ultimate comfort food. Here is one such version of a “healthy” pasta.

I have used whole wheat white sauce and spinach adds an extra healthy element in the sauce. It just zings up the pasta into some incredible flavor.

Ingredients:

For sauce-

Prepare the spinach by pressure cooking for 10 minutes & blend till smooth.

Now add 3 tsp of whole wheat flour in a big glass. Full it with half of water and rest half with milk. Mix thoroughly till no lumps are left.

For pasta-

Take 1 packet of drumwheat spaghetti pasta and cook in boiling salted water for about 10 min til al-Dante. Strain and keep aside.

Additionally prepare the veggies you want to put in pasta. I have chopped yellow, red and green bell pepper, some cabbage, an onion. Saute it in 1tbsp oil until nicely charred.

Now for final assembly-

Take a deep non stick  pan/kadai. Add 1 tsp garlic and herbs butter. Pour in the whole wheat mix. Use a whisk at this time as the mix will start to thicken. As it thickens lower the gas flame. Add salt and pepper as per your taste. Keep whisking for about 3-4 min in total. Add in the spinach puree.
