Baked vegetable pasta in white sauce-
veg pasta in white sauce This version of pasta has always been my favourite. I love the cheesy flavour and the addition of choice of vegetables makes it healthy and colourful. Though a little high in calories, I do make this once in a while as its a family favourite too!!!

Pasta- 1 cup
Mixed vegetables- 1 cup(Bellpepper, carrots,broccoli)
Butter- 1/2tsp
Salt to taste
Mixed dried herbs- 1/4tsp
Grated cheese to sprinkle on top

For white sauce-
Cheese- 1tsp
Plain flour- 1tsp
Milk- 1cup
Pepper- 1tsp freshly ground
Salt if necesary( butter and cheese will contain the necesary salt)

Boil the pasta in water along with some salt. Drain the water when the pasta is fully cooked and wash it under running water so that they dont stick to each other.
Heat butter in a pan. Add the chopped vegetables and saute till it becomes tender.
Now prepare the white sauce-
Melt the butter in a pan. Add the cheese. Now add the flour. Mix. Now add milk slowly stirring well. Ensure there are no lumps. Add the pepper and salt if necessary. Allow it to thicken. Now add the Cooked vegetables and cooked pasta. Add the dried herbs and mix thoroughly.
