1. Heat a pan. Add water, salt and 1 tsp of oil and pasta. Cook them well but they should not get broken. Most of the pasta packets have the cooking instruction with timings. Cook accordingly. Drain the pasta and rinse them in water till they become cool. Add 1 tsp of oil again and mix them without breaking them. This is to ensure that they do not become sticky. Olive oil is preferred.
2. Take a mixing bowl, add maida(all purpose flour), milk, butter, cheese, red chilli flakes, dry herbs(oregano, basil or any dry herbs), salt and black pepper powder(coarse or fine powder). Mix well till there are no lumps. This is the white sauce mixture.
3. Heat 1 tsp of oil and add chopped big onion slices. Saute till they turn translucent. Add the white sauce mixture we have prepared. Cook in low flame till the raw smell of flour goes off. Stir frequently.
