2 cups shell or any other pasta
3 tbsp wheat flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup mild cheddar cheese (grated)
1/2 cup fresh cream
Salt and pepper to taste
dried thyme
2-3 cloves of garlic; finely chopped
1 small bunch of spinach leaves
Olive oil

Cook the pasta as per instructions given on its package.
In a pan, add some olive oil, then add chopped garlic to it. Cook for a minute until it is fragrant and then add chopped spinach.
Mix and cover and cook for 3-4 minutes. Season with some salt, thyme / oregano. Remove from flame and set aside.
In a saucepan, melt some butter and roast wheat flour until it turns brown. Then while whisking add milk and cook for a minute stirring continuously. To avoid lumps while preparing the sauce, let the flour cool down. Then add cold milk to it, mix well and then transfer to flame.
