White Sauce for Pasta

This is a simple recipe to make pasta white sauce from scratch in your own kitchen. Usually I don't prefer White Pasta dishes in Italian Restaurants, as those dishes are served with rich white Alfredo sauce that is loaded with cream and calories. This recipe is very less time consuming and you can make it on the fly when you are cooking pasta itself. So with this recipe, you can make restaurant style like pasta at home from scratch, but light and flavorful. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

White Pasta Sauce from Scratch

Butter - 2 Tbsp
All Purpose Flour - 1/4 cup
Milk - 1 1/2 Cups
Oregano - 1/2 tsp
Dry Basil - 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp

*yields - 2 cups of sauce ( good for 4 servings of pasta)


  1. Heat a small sauce pan on the stove. Add butter to it, wait until it melts.
  2. Add APF to the butter and mix it thoroughly so that no lumps are formed. Now add milk in 1/4 cup additions to the pan and keep on mixing until the thick sauce forms. ( for up to 1 cup milk)
  3. Now add salt, oregano, dry basil, black pepper to the sauce and thin it by adding remaining 1/2 cup of milk in 1/4 cup measures. 
  4. Now you should have gotten the creamy sauce consistency. Switch off from the stove and pour this sauce into your pasta dish, top with some parmesan cheese and serve hot. 
  • When you are adding milk, upto 1 cup of milk you don't see the sauce formation, don't be panic, but keep mixing and adding milk in 1/4 cup quantities with out forming any lumps. 
  • I haven't tried this recipe for storing hence can't speak up for storing instructions. 
  • I prefer to make this sauce fresh when ever I make pasta. This same sauce works good for cold pasta recipes as well.
  • Usually if you buy the pasta sauce from store, you won't end up using the whole bottle and once the bottle is opened and not used with in 5 days, it gets spoiled. Hence this recipe is very handy for me in terms of saving dollars and reducing calories. :-)

Hope you have liked this recipe,
take care until we meet here again
