Broccoli, carrots and sausage pasta

This is what I made for our dinner yesterday. Simple, delicious and satisfactory.

Onion - 1 (sliced thin)
Carrot - sliced into slivers
Broccoli florets - sliced lengthwise - about 1 cup
Sausages - cut into bite sized pieces
pasta - 2 cups (cooked according to package instructions)

(These are the basic things that went into the dish. You may change or add veggies and meat according to your will. Also needed are some crushed black pepper, olive oil, butter,oregano,salt and a bit of soy/oyster sauce.... again, quantity of all these can be according to your liking...)

I made a thin white sauce with

Flour - 1 tbsp
Butter - 1/2 tsp
olive oil - a little
Milk - 1 and 1/2 cups
Cheese - 1/4 cup grated
Lightly saute the flour in the butter and olive oil (never let it turn brown, add the milk little by little so as to smooth out any lumps, take off fire, stir all the time and add the cheese .

Blanch broccoli and carrots in salted water, drain and keep aside. In a hot pan , add some olive oil and butter and saute the onions. Now add the sausages and fry.Add the broccoli and carrots and saute well. Add crushed pepper, salt and sauces. Toss in the pasta.

You can either mix the white sauce with the pasta or pour it on individual servings according to choice. Dive in before it goes cold.

Am entering this one for Foodie Friday.
