Cheesy Garlic Sauce for Vegetables

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by half_a_penny

After looking for a cheese sauce and coming up short, I created this fantastic recipe that the whole family LOVED! You can use any kind of cheese you like, but I prefer an old/sharp cheddar. The cayenne pepper only adds flavour, not heat, so if you want it hot you'll have to increase it.

I Loved this sauce. I used it over my rigate pasta instead of vegetables and it was sooooooo delicious. It is extremely flavorful. Thanks for submitting this sauce recipe.
