    Nif's Note:

    Bechamel is a wonderful white sauce that you can add on top of pasta, chicken, etc. dishes. It usually consists of butter and cream so this version is much lighter but with all the flavour. I like to use it on pasta instead of alfredo sauce. Enjoy!

      This is a wonderful sauce! I didn't miss the fats at all. The parmesan gave the sauce great texture, and I added a little more. I put this over some chicken roll-ups to which I'd added spinach. Very, very good. Thank you Nif for another wonderful recipe! Made for Chef's Pick at one of KK's forums.

      Using a combination of the other reviewer and the chef;s suggestions, I used this to make a chicken alfredo pizza (sauce, italian herb chicken in thin strips, a sprinkkle of mozzarella, topped with basil and a bit of parmesan after baking). This was delicious and fits right into our trying to be healthier lifestyle! Thanks for posting! made for PRMR tag game December 2009.

      I omitted the nutmeg and salt. It was very easy to do. And the addition of parmesan cheese gives a great taste to it. I used the sauce to top a pizza and then added sliced mushrooms, shrimps cooked in garlic butter and then cheese of course. Yummy! Thanks Nif :) Made for TYM tag game
