Farfella in Béchamel sauce

I been to many workshops,I luv the way italians speak english in their own accent...I luv when they say "Litherally"  for (Literally) and Wother for (Water) ..I love the cheese in Italian food ,its addictive.Certainly ,Chennai has got lot of Italian eat-outs every nook and corner...No wonder if it is included in all south indian hotels soon..Recently ,i been dragged  to a sea view cafe.Since i am dieting,i am not feasting at all.The people came with me didn't bother my diet and ordered two full plates of pasta..That was the moment i felt how tough being in diet...With the aroma of cheese and the beautiful pasta,I cant end my dinner without them... :-P.With 400 variety of cheeses ,why not we call Italy is the gujarat of the world..You must try the soft mozarella cheese with this recipe..If i say its heavenilicious,i am still understating it.
Alfredo sauce is different from Béchamel sauce...Béchamel sauce means mother of sauce
(one among the five mother sauces)..
