Pasta with spinach – White sauce for pasta anyone ?

This has been my pasta week and I was crazily looking for spinach pasta sauce recipe but sadly I didn’t find any instant pasta sauce recipe so I decided to make my spinach pasta in white sauce.
Having pasta in  breakfast with  hubby on  bright Sunday morning is  fun.While eating I keep telling my husband what all are the ingredients I added in the pasta even though I know he is more interested in having pasta than knowing about the ingredients :D:D
Before going ahead let us learn the

white sauce recipe

In a small heavy pan melt 1tbsp of butter on low heat and blend 1 tbsp of all purpose white flour(maida) in it.Keep stirring both the ingredients otherwise it may form clumps.Add 1/4tsp. of salt and cook it on medium heat for 2-3 minutes more.Now slowly add 1 cup of milk and stirr constantly.Continue cooking till the sauce gets thick.If you want heavy white sauce than you can take 2tbsp of butter and 2tbsp of all purpose flour.
This is the basic white sauce recipe which gets cooked  in 5-10 minutes.
For Spinach pasta you need following ingredients.
1tbsp. of oil(olive oil)
1 onion chopped
1 green chilli chopped
A small bunch of spinach leaves
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder (according to taste)
250 gms of pasta(You can take any pasta of your choice)
Water to cook the spinach

Now our pasta and spinach is cooked.
