    How about adding some chopped garlic to the sauteed onions, also 1/2 tsp dried mixed herbs, makes a lot of difference to the finished dish.

    when you already add milk in your pasta to make a sauce, then how a person is suppose to seperate sauce to make layers of sauce and pasta for baking........please clear the doubt.
