I made a roux, like everyone else. Threw in some garlic powder and a dash of pepper, reduced the milk to two cups and the cheese to one and a half cups. Made a simple, yummy cheese sauce, super fast. It could use a little more zest, though.

I made it very similary to parsley. I too made a roux and added garlic powder. I also tried using rotini (not a fan of bow ties). This was a very good and creamy recipe, but there was something missing. I'll post as soon as I figure out what.

This makes a great side dish. I think this would work well with rotini too. I did add some garlic powder for some extra flavor. Also, I melted about 3 tbsp of butter in the pan and then blended in the flour (making a roux), then milk, and so on. I would recommend using that method rather than whisking flour in milk. The result was a thick, creamy and smooth cheese sauce. I'll be making this again. Thanx for posting!
