Pasta, Pasta water, All-Purpose Flour, Oregano, and salt not included in this photo


Ingredients-

Pasta- We use about 2 cups of organic Garofalo pasta in the recipe.

All-Purpose Flour- Flour stabilizes the sauce and thickens the sauce as well. We use a very small amount in this recipe.

Garlic- Garlic makes the sauce authentic. Mince( finely chop) one clove of garlic for the sauce.

Butter- Butter fries the garlic so it can get it's ultimate taste and you don't have to eat raw garlic.

Milk- Milk is one of the original ingredients in béchamel sauce, and is vital to the sauce as well. We use about 1/2 cup milk in our white sauce.

Cheese- adjust based on preference, I used about 2-3 tablespoons of cheese.

Pasta water- We use drained pasta water to thin the sauce. It also adds flavor. Adjust the pasta water to preference.

Black pepper cloves- Freshly grind about 1/2 teaspoon black pepper cloves to use in the sauce. Adjust pepper based on preference.

Oregano(optional)- Pasta always needs a touch of oregano!

Salt- Adjust salt to taste.
