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.

pasta of choice
1 c
chicken pieces
1/2 c
onion, chopped
1 c
fresh vegetables like french beans, carrots and capsicum chopped

1
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.
2
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.

4
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

Sound great, Ruma! It may sound silly, but I don't know what capsicum is, but I am saving this anyway :D

Thank you All :):)
@Pam, I generally use the normal Italian pasta seasoning that I get in nearby stores. If you would like to add Indian seasoning then you can try cumin powder / coriander powder. You can also use red chilli powder [1/4 tsp] if you like it little spicy. Use cumin powder / coriander powder and chilli powder when you cook the vegetables [step 3]. Then you can garnish with little cilantro along with cheese. Do not use pasta seasoning along with the Indian spices to avoid mixing up of the tastes. Try and enjoy :).
@Pat, Thank you so much for sharing the recipe with various groups :):).
