Ruma's notes for this recipe:
This is a common pasta recipe that is being cooked by Indian moms for their kids here making sure that they are offered familiar taste. Thus, Italian pasta got some twists in Indian kitchens.

For white sauce, light fry refined flour in butter. Cool and add milk, salt, black pepper powder or flakes, cheese and mix properly. Put on the heat and cook till a boil.
Cook pasta in water till al dente. I add a little oil in water so that pasta does not clump. Drain water and keep aside.
Saute onion and chicken pieces in butter. Cook till chicken is done. Add carrot, french beans, salt and cook till the vegetables are cooked.
Add capsicum and pasta. Mix properly and then mix in the white sauce, pepper, pasta seasoning and the pasta is ready. Garnish with cheese and serve

Sounds very tasty. I will be trying this if the hot weather will just cool off for a day or two. I noticed you use Pasta Seasoning, and was wondering what one you use? Is it Italian style or can you tell us what spices, etc are in it? I was expecting some kind of Indian spices for a different flavor. :)
