    To make the white sauce in a pan add a the butter and melt. Once melted add flour and wish until smooth. Slightly cook there should be a couple bubbles but you do not want to brown it.

    Step 9

    Once there are a couple bubbles add the milk. Stir until all the flour is mixed in. Then add the oregano, basil and time.

    Step 10

    Cook until the sauce thickens and you see bubbles like in the picture. One the sauce has emulsified add the mushrooms and pasta to it.
