  • Gradually add milk and stir continuously to avoid lumps.
  • Cook the sauce on medium flame, stirring until you get a little thick consistency.
  • Remove from the flame, add salt and pepper and keep the sauce aside.
  • To finish off:
  • Add the spinach, paneer cubes and the spaghetti to the white sauce. Mix well.
  • Grease a baking dish and pour the white sauce mixture into it. Let it cool.
  • Evenly spread cheese on it.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees until the cheese turns golden.
  • Let the dish remain in the oven for 10 minutes before serving.
