  • Butter - ½ cup
  • Margarine - ¼ cup

  • Salt - 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic powder - ½ teaspoon
How to Prepare

Place a skillet and melt butter along with margarine in it, over low heat. Add the sifted flour and stir well to avoid formation of clumps. The next step is to add the milk and cream to the skillet. Mix them, before adding the chicken broth mixed with cornstarch. Stir the mixture till it boils. Let it boil for a minute or two, before removing from the stove. Now, you can add the spices and the remaining ingredients, including cheese and salt. You can serve your pasta in white sauce.

Recipe III

Ingredients
  • Dry white wine - ¼ cup
  • Butter - ¼ cup
  • Skim milk - as per requirement
  • Chopped clams (canned) - 1 ½ cup
  • Flour - 2 tablespoons
  • Minced garlic - 1 large clove
  • Chopped parsley - ¼ cup
  • Thyme - ½ teaspoon
  • Salt and Pepper - as per taste
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and saute for a minute, before stirring in the flour. Make sure to stir well, as the flour may form clumps. Once you take out the clams from the can, you have to mix the juice in the can with wine. If the mixture falls short of two cups, add enough skin milk. Now, you have to add this mixture to the skillet. Instead of adding it in whole, pour in small batches and stir well. Allow the mixture to cook till it thickens. The next step is to add the chopped parsley, thyme, salt and pepper. Cooke over low heat for around eight to ten minutes. Add the clams and cook for another few minutes, before you remove the skillet from heat. Your white sauce is ready to serve with pasta.
