Use this sauce with your favourite pasta – tortellini are great!!
Also wonderful drizzled over a tomato sauced pasta.
2 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. flour
1 cup milk (cream could also be used)
½ to ¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in flour, mixing until smooth. Let cook a few minutes. Stir in milk or cream slowly, stirring. Add Parmesan cheese and let simmer gently for about 10 minutes.
NOTE: Milk and only ½ cup Parmesan cheese makes a deliciously rich sauce and it cuts the fat!!!
