    Take the water in wide vessel and bring it to rolling boil, then add Pasta, cook till pasta is soft and firm. stir now and then, to avoid pasta gets stick to vessel. Then drain it in a colander, and Pour cold water over it, to avoid it getting cooked further.

  • Heat the kadai, add 2 tsp of oil, add  chopped carrot suate it .when it is half done add capsicum, saute till veggie are  cooked.Veggies should be soft but maintain its crunchiness.
  • Then remove it from kadai, add butter, when it melted, add Maida saute for few seconds, then add 1/2 cup milk, sir continuously to avoid lumps.cook in low flame. Make sure it should not have any lump in it. When it comes to creamy consistency, add remaining milk.

  • Finally top with cheese and give a quick mix.switch off and serve hot.
  • While cooking Pasta,make sure, it should be soft and firm.
  • I used Penne Pasta, you could use Pasta of any type.
  • I used Capsicum and carrot. you could also add corns & Mushrooms along with it.
  • Make sure sauce does not have any lumps in it. whisk continuously to break lumps.
  • if you don't have oregano handy,u can omit it.
  •  if you feel pasta is dry, you could add some more milk at last and give a quick mix.
  • serve hot.
  • Before serving if you feel pasta is dry, heat up the milk, add pasta and give a stir.
