Cheesy White Pasta

 Pasta's are ordered often when we visit Pizza shops. I love the Olive oil flavour and the crisp veggies on the pasta's. Once i started to make Pasta's, i never ordered on pizza outlets. its such easy to make and we can add the choice of vegetables and customise it very much.

  17. I added onions as suggested but it was awful, rather add white sauce to boiled pasta and use oregano seasoning on top...
