Pasta with cream sauce - easy dinner

This is the quickest, easiest dinner you can make - limited cutting, vetting and otting. Amigo i am sure you will like it !

Pasta – spaghetti/spiral
Thickened Cream/cooking cream – 1 small tub
Milk – 1 cup
Garlic – 3 or 4
Raisin – a handful ( optional)
Butter – 1 Tbsp
Plain Flour – 1 Tbsp
Cheese – 1 slice
Bok Choy / mushroom – optional


1. Cook pasta as per instructions in the pack ( cook in water with a pinch of salt and a small tsp of oil) – I use spaghetti and spiral
2. Soak raisin in warm water for 20 minutes
3. In a pan heat the butter, stir in the flour for few seconds ( make sure you dont burn this)
4. Add the milk and stir it well – this makes the cream sauce
5. Add half the tub of cream into the pan
6. Now add the cooked pasta
7. In a seperate pan heat some oil and fry garlic and bok choy / mushroom till they are cooked
8. Add vegetables, salt and keep mixing
9. Top it with some more cream
10. Add cheese if you have them (I use the cheese let I use for sandwich)
11. Add the raisin
12. if you like avacado, you can mash it with fork and add to the pasta before serving

Thats it - it takes 20 minutes tops.
