White Pasta Sauce

Hello,

Can someone tell me under what name/section should I search to buy White Pasta Sauce 100% vegetarian in Migros or Coop? It would be of great help if someone can help me on this.

Thanks so much.

Re: White Pasta Sauce

I think in Migros the vegi sauces are with the others. Take a good torch and a magnifying glass and you'll see which say Vegi, Lakto Vegi or whatever on them.

Re: White Pasta Sauce

Make your own one its faster and healthier.

Melt butter in pan. Add flour to make a roux.
Into it add vegeterian stock gradually- add mushrooms and peas and onions if you like.

and then add some cream to finish.
Grate in Parmesan.

Enjoy

This takes you MAX MAX MAX 15 mins.
You can put the water on to boil whilst you make the sauce.

Also courgettes and peas and parmesan can be a good combi with some cream and parmesan. Cut out the butter and flour and stock

Enjoy

White sauce with cheese?

Re: White Pasta Sauce

I say so.

So yes.

Pluss- who wants to eat nasty bland sauce?

It's bad enough being a vegeterian

Re: White Pasta Sauce

I made a wonderful Spaghetti Primavera last night with no meat. Is this what you are talking about? I'd be happy to tell you how I made it.

Any sauce that doesn't have tomatoes in it, at least that's how Italians see it.

Re: White Pasta Sauce

If you want to be really lazy daisy...cook the pasta as normal...drain off the water, then add some butter (1 tablespoon) or olive oil works nicely as well, fresh the best or dry basil, garlic, parm cheese (grated) with some table cream (the good stuff), plenty in supply in switzerland i am sure Of course, the ingredients depend on how much pasta you cook! Really easy and delicious and quick!!

Recipe for Spaghetti Primavera (originally from Le Cirque Restaurant back in the 70's!)

You will need two saute pans, one big pot and a strainer.

Into the first hot saute pan, put in a generous coating of olive oil, two big, diced ripe tomatoes, (I take out the seed pockets because my husband hates them), two cloves of garlic chopped into tiny pieces, a sprinkling of salt and pepper and a generous handful of chopped, fresh italian flat leaf parsley. Saute for about 5 minutes until the tomatoes are mushy and the garlic is cooked, but not burned brown. Set aside.

Put your box of spaghetti onto boil in salted water. Splash some olive oil into the water so the pasta does not stick together. Boil until al dente, strain the water out and put the spaghetti back into the big cooking pot.

In the microwave, (or you can blanch, which is much more time-consuming), cook 1 cup of frozen peas and 1 cup of frozen snow peas. After they are steaming, take them out of the micro and put them in a hot saute pan coated with olive oil. Add 1 cup of sliced mushrooms to the pan. Heat one sliced zucchini and one head of broccoli cut into small florets in the micro for about 2 minutes. Add to the saute pan with the mushrooms, etc. Add salt and pepper to the veggies until everything is warm but not cooked to death. Stir in a generous handful of chopped, fresh basil. Take off the heat.

Into the big cooking pot with the pasta, add 3/4 of a stick of butter. Use tongs to mix until the butter melts and coats the spaghetti. Add 1 cup of warmed demi-creme (sorry, I don't know what this is called in German) and 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese. When all of the pasta is coated with deliciousness, put your tomato mixture in and your green veg mixture in and mix well. Salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with about 12 cherry tomatoes, cut in half, sprinkled over the top.

Bechamel does NOT have eggs in it, just butter, flour, and milk.

Hollandaise (and some other sauces) has eggs.

Re: White Pasta Sauce

@ st2lemans : the READYMADE sauce bechamel (THOMY brand) has egg yolk in it and powdered onions and other stuff.
when u make it from scratch at home, its just flour,milk and butter and whatever else u want to add.

Re: White Pasta Sauce

You don't really want to eat bechamel/roux with pasta do you? That's basically a bit more flour with your flour

If you want a creamy sauce, cook spaghetti till one minute earlier than the printed time, drain lightly (leaving a little water) and put back in the pot. Crack a couple of eggs and some pecorino and grana padano and salt (no herbs and no pepper please) and stir. Add cooked bacon/prosciutto/lardons/sausage pieces for a more complete dish.

EDIT: if too thick, add a tablespoon of milk and stir again.

Re: White Pasta Sauce

I prefer to go for a tuna ( from a jar in olive oil), fresh tomatoes , parsely, garlic, good olive oil, anchovy and caper sauce.


Thats the best white sauce youll ever eat dont cook any of it bar the pasta. just warm the garlic in some olive oil to get the flavours out of it.

Its so so so good in the summer in a big bowl and you can eat it hot.cold or luke warm.

You can also add in boiled eggs if you like to make it richer or great in a courgette ( raw)

With olives and chilli it's almost a puttanesca, but in no way a white sauce! It's all the colours of the rainbow, unless I'm missing something?
