This is my go to recipe for cheese sauce and thought it was past time to review it. I made it yesterday to go over gluten free pasta. The flour was a gluten free blend. I like to use a combination of cheeses and typically stay with a cheddar and mozzarella blend. This is excellent with pasta or over veggies.

Great sauce. I used it for a casserole, so had to add more milk to make it a little thinner. :) Otherwise, thanks. Since going gluten-free, I miss my Mac & Cheese terribly. ;) Also added garlic powder, which gave it some extra ooooomph!
