This is a great white sauce for pasta--a real one dish meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat every thing together on med heat until boiling. Reduce and simmer about 15 minutes. Add 1/2 cup cooked bacon or ham.
  2. You can add frozen peas, asparagus, artichokes--whatever vegetable-meat combination you like.
  3. Serve over cooked tortellini or any pasta you like.
  4. Garnish with fresh chopped bell peppers (I use red).
  5. If the sauce is too thick for your taste, add some milk until thinner.

I picked this recipe as a last minute addition to fresh tortellini for an unplanned meal. The rich taste was a nice change from store bought sauce, and my kids loved it too!
