    Nif's Note:

    It's nice to have an easy recipe for cheese sauce on hand. You can drizzle this over broccoli, cauliflower or pretty much any other favourite veggie. It is also nice tossed with pasta but you may need to increase the amount of sauce. Enjoy!

      What a great simple and easy cheese sauce! It was a snap to make and tastes decadently cheesy. :) I used a red Irish cheddar and used the sauce to make mac and cheese. Very tasty!
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Nif!

      I loved the taste of that cheese sauce. I served it on steamed brussel sprouts. I used sharp cheddar cheese. It gave a great taste to the sauce. It's very easy to do. I omitted the salt and cayenne pepper. Thanks Nif :) Made for Photo tag game

      This was a winner for us. In less than ten minutes we made homemade mac-n-cheese. We are going to try using really sharp cheddar in the future to bring out more flavor.
