White pasta sauce recipe w/ veggies?

I need a good white sauce recipe plus ideas about what kind of veggies I can add to the pasta I'd serve it with. I also want to know which veggies are the best (I already know about broccoli) for white sauce pasta, how to cook them, when to add them for best results, all the good stuff. I want to be able to make white sauce pasta good enough for dinner parties. Thank you!White pasta sauce recipe w/ veggies?
I make my daughter a ';homemade alfredo'; sauce by taking butter and melting it in a saucepan, add italian seasonings, salt and pepper. I grate up 1 onion and a few cloves of garlic and sautee it first, then add it to the butter. I use Parmesan cheese to thicken it and a little half and half to get the right consistency. Just add your veggies and mix with pasta. You can try asparagus or zucchini instead of broccoli. Or if you like eggplant you can incorporate that in as well. Good luckWhite pasta sauce recipe w/ veggies?
For a different twist, try steaming some cauliflower and blending this up in the white sauce, it makes the sauce really creamy and taste cheesy without actually having any cheese in it. We do it all the time, makes sure our daughter will eat some veges too.
Try this out sometime you won't regret it. (single serving so you can try it out before making it for your party.)
