Cheesy Pasta

This is a recipe for Mac n Cheese which I twisted a bit by using Fusili pasta which was the only one I had in my hand and also added peas to it.But the result was so good that I said 'Good Bye' to Kraft MAC.I can only imagine what would have happened if I had macaroni in hand. Anyway here's the recipe :

Fusilii Pasta: 1 cup
Cheddar cheese:1/2 cup shredded
Milk:1/4 cup
Butter:1 tbspn unsalted
Salt:as per taste
Pepper:as per taste
Green Peas:1 tbspn
Cornstarch: 1/2 tbspn
Parmesan Cheese:1/2 tbspn

Cook Pasta as per package instructions. Also add peas to it.If the peas is frozen then add 2 minutes before cooking completes.Mix together cheese and corn starch. This avoids the cheese from being too stringy.

Heat butter in a pan.As it starts to melt lower the gas and add pasta peas combo first and then milk to it.Mix to coat well.Add cheese -cornstarch mixture.Mix well.Top with grated parmesan cheese.Add salt and pepper.Serve hot.

This is my second entry to A.W.E.D -Italian as a Main Vegetarian Course
