Cute Pasta with Homemade White Sauce

My recent discover in supermarket! cute shaped pasta! Aren't they cute! Other design like Racing Cars, Princess Series, Thomas Train & Hello Kitty are available. But I did not manage to spot the HK one if not sure will grab a package :P

Ooooo this creamy white sauce is so easy to make and very tasty also!! definitely less sodium loaded & food flavourings than commercially bought one! :D

Homemade Creamy Pasta White Sauce

  • 3 cloves, garlic, minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 250ml milk
  • 30gm butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • salt to taste
  • pinch of ground nutmeg
