I got this recipe from a friend. In addition to being a wonderful sauce for pasta, this white sauce is a great basic recipe to use with seasonal vegetables such as zucchini. This sauce is also perfect for adding shrimp or scallops. Spring onions are used in this recipe as they tend to be milder in taste than other onions. Although this recipe calls for fresh garlic, minced garlic may also be used. One teaspoon of minced garlic equals 2 cloves. Since this is a white sauce, it does NOT need cheese. The pasta should be added to the sauce, not the sauce to the pasta. Please note that some ingredients used in my recipe are approximations and more spices may be needed depending on individual taste. Enjoy!
