Veg Pasta in White Sauce

First time I had pasta with my lil sis at Pizza Hut. Both of us just loved there mushroom spinach pasta in white sauce.

I have a habit that if I like some thing in food, art, craft, I want to replicate that on my own to see whether I can do that or not.

Same happened with white sauce :). People say it's very easy to prepare white sauce, but I made a couple of mistakes before I got this recipe and it works like magic. I shared it with my sis and friends and they also liked it, so it's error free..

Very innovative special decoration with apple pieces is done by B :).
