1. This Alfredo sauce uses milk, butter, flour and cheese to get a creamy texture. I have tried this recipe using All-purpose flour as well as the Chappati Aata (Indian wheat flour) without compromising on the taste. The only thing I do is roast the Chapathi aata a little longer than the All-purpose flour to get the raw taste of the flour off. Well, once the sauce is cooked, you cannot identify the flour used except for the color of the sauce. The Alfredo sauce with Chappati aata has slight beige tint to it.
2. The sauce thickens as it cools down. Add a little bit more milk and reheat if you find the sauce to be thick to your liking.
3. I use vegetables like Baby Corn (I source it either from South East Asian stores of in the Asian food Isle in my local grocery store), Bell Pepper/Capsicum, Button Mushrooms, Olives etc.
4. To make the sauce a little spicy to satisfy the Indian taste buds, I use Pepper Jack Cheese. Use any of your favorite cheese.
5. A note about the portion size: I have made this recipe with Macaroni, Penne and Rotini Pasta (all are our favorites). This recipe usually serves "two big appetites" (two adults) and one tween (one kid) appetite. :) . Sometimes, there will be a little bit of leftovers.
6. I also serve some Garlic bread or a small side of steamed vegetables along with this creamy Spinach Alfredo Sauce pasta.
