Broccoli in Spicy White Sauce

Pasta in white sauce, this dish is everyone's favourite at home. Obviously i dont forget to add loads of vegetables if am making white sauce at home. Broccoli is not my younger one's favourite since he loves white sauce, i thought its one of the best way to feed him easily broccoli by adding this antioxydant rich vegetable in his favourite white sauce. And this dish works absolutely incredible, we finished our lunch happily with penne and this broccoli loaded spicy white sauce. Am running my second week of blogging marathon with pasta in different sauce, am posting this delicious white sauce as it suits prefectly for this week's theme.

I spiced this white sauce with chilly flakes and pepper powder, obviously both makes this white sauce bit spicy and delicious as well. Try to dont overcook the broccoli florets and keep them as much crunch as. The crunchiness of this healthy vegetable makes this dish makes more interesting and highly healthier than the usual white sauce. As much as like my earlier post, this broccoli in spicy white sauce can be used in making gratin as well. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#50.
