Bechamel... This is kind of a Middle Eastern twist on a pasta casserole dish. It can be made with ground beef or chicken or even vegetarian with eggplant. I would suggest making the bechamel sauce from scratch, but if you are in a hurry you can buy it pre-packaged as well.
This recipe is for a basic Italian White Cream Sauce (like an Alfredo or bechamel) for Pasta, Chicken, Shrimp, etc. You can add other ingredients to suit your liking, this is the basic version - goes great over Fettuccine or Tortellini... you can also add 1 teaspoon oregano or parsley to flavor. If you throw in some bacon, carmelized onion And a handful of frozen peas And serve over pappardelle it is absolutely fabulous!
Recipe - Zucchini Béchamel - Boil zucchini in salty boiling water for 5-6 minutes or until zucchinis become tender. Pour in strainer, cool under water and set it aside in the strainer to be well strained.
