From Company's Coming Make Ahead Meals by J. Pare. When I made this myself, I found the sauce to be a little bland, feel free to add additional spices if desired.

Bland. I like the idea. Needs more flavor. Will need to tweak.

This is a good base recipe to add on to. Easy and CHEAP to make! My kids and I didn't like the recipe when followed exactly. I added chicken. It was VERY bland, no taste. I will use again with the following changes. More salt, to taste for us was much more than a pinch. I am also going to add some garlic and onion and more butter in the base.
