Fry the veggies till they are semi-cooked (somewhat crunchy) and keep them aside.
Heat 1½ tablespoon of butter in that same frying pan, add 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic in it and get it sautéed.
Add 1½ tablespoon of all purpose flour (maida) in the pan
Stir the mixture for some time, add 1½ cup milk in it and continue stirring with a whisk.
Stir and whip the mixture till it gives out a thick creamy texture.
Add the pasta, the sautéed veggies and cook for a couple of minutes on medium flame.
Turn off the flame, rotate and grind out JK Italian seasoning, JK Burnt Garlic seasoning directly on the pasta and mix it well. Finally, sprinkle JK Red Chilli Flakes and JK Pepper Salt Mix as per taste.
Pour it in a serving bowl and add grated cheese on top (optional).
