Perfect. Easy, quick, yummy! I used Jack cheese and poured the sauce over egg noodles with peas and diced ham. My 3 year old is in HEAVEN!

Excellent and easy cheese sauce! The ingredients are things that most everyone has on hand all the time, so this is a keeper in my book! I made the cheese sauce for a meatloaf and it was really delicious. Thank you Xiola Blue!
