How to make Spinach Corn Pasta Recipe In Creamy White Sauce
To begin making the Spinach Corn Pasta Recipe In White Sauce, we will first cook the pasta and make the sauce.
In a large pot, add water and bring it to a boil. Once the water has boiled, add a teaspoon of salt. Add the pasta to the boiling water and let it cook in the boiling water until it is al dente. This process should take a good 12-15 minutes.
Once the pasta has cooked, drain the water and run the cooked pasta under running water to stop the cooking process. Drizzle some oil on top of pasta and make sure to coat all of the pasta with the oil.
*To make the whole wheat pasta sauce
To make pasta sauce; whisk the milk, wheat flour, black pepper powder, and salt. Stir until there are no lumps.
In a separate pan, heat a tablespoon olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add chopped onion, garlic and saute for few minutes, until you smell the aromas coming through and the onions have softened.
Pour the milk mixture into the onion mixture and keep stirring continuously to cook the sauce. Keep stirring until the sauce thickens and has cooked through.
Cook the sauce on medium heat, so the sauce thickens gradually with no lumps. If the sauce is a little too thick, you can add water, milk or cream to lighten the sauce. Once done, turn off the heat, check the salt and spice levels and keep aside.
*To prepare the Spinach Corn Pasta Recipe In White Sauce
Our next step is to cook the spinach. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a wok on medium heat.
Add the spinach and corn and cook until the spinach has wilted down. This will take about a minute. Add the cooked fusilli pasta to the cooked spinach and give it a stir.
When you are ready to serve, combine the sauce along with the spinach pasta and give it a toss in the wok. Check the salt and spice levels and adjust to suit your taste.
It is important to mix the sauce to the pasta only when you are ready to serve, so the pasta tastes fresh and does not become sticky and gooey.
