Tri Colour Pasta in homemade white sauce

You can use any pasta of your choice. I particularly used this one because my little one likes the colors of this pasta. The sauce is made from wheat flour, therefore I call it 'healthy pasta'. I have added shredded chicken in the pasta to make it more yummy for kids! If you do not want to add chicken, try mushrooms, broccoli or corn to make it more colourful!

3 tbs wheat flour
1 tbs amul butter
1/2 tsp of pepper powder
milk 2 cups
Amul cheese cubes 2 (grated)
mixed herbs 1/2 tsp
boneless chicken 150 gms
tricolor pasta 2 cups (or any pasta of your choice)
salt as per taste

  1. Cook pasta as per the instructions on the packet. Add little salt and oil to the boiling water so that the pasta does not stick to one another.
  2. Cook the chicken with little salt and shred it into bite size pieces. Keep is aside.
  3. White Sauce-
    Heat a pan and add the butter. After the butter melts add the wheat flour and stir for a while till the color changes to light brown. Add milk and stir continuously. See to it that no lumps are formed in this process. Add salt, pepper powder, mixed herbs and grated cheese. The sauce will start thickening after sometime. Keep stirring continuously so that the sauce is not burnt from the bottom. If any lumps are formed you can use a hand mixer or blend the sauce by using a mixer. The white sauce is ready.
  4. Take a microwave safe cookware and add the pasta, chicken and mix well. Add the sauce. Preheat oven at 180 degrees and cook the pasta for 10-12 minutes.

    * The white sauce can be stored in deep fridge for about a month
