Top Review by Dwynnie

This was a great easy sauce! I made the sauce with a mixture of mozzerella and parmesean (since the mozzerella is so mild, I added extra--about a cup of cheese total) and also added 1/2 tsp of a dried "Italian Seasoning" spice mix to the mustard, salt, and pepper. A wonderful change to the usual pasta sause--and great for so many more uses! Thank you!

  1. NOTE: you should be constantly stirring this for the duration (after adding flour) so it has a smooth consistency.
  2. Melt butter in a small pan.
  3. Stir through flour till disolved (No lumps).
  4. Slowly add milk, continuously stirring though, important to pour milk bit by bit, without burning, and once, milk is added, keep on stirring until mixture thickens. (this should take roughly 2-3 mins in total).
  5. When you notice it thickening, continue stirring, and slowly add cheese, bit by bit.
  6. Add mustard, and salt and pepper.
  7. Presto!
