There are many ways to prepare pasta and one of them is to cook pasta in white sauce. So today we are cooking macaroni ( a type of pasta) in white sauce. To make it healthy you can add veggies like carrot, broccoli, sweet corns, basil etc.

I have added only sweet corns to it as my son do not love veggies in pasta..that is why i usually cook penne(pasta) in pumpkin sauce for him.
