      My first time making a cream sauce and such a simple easy recipe. I prepared as directed. I was not sure how thick it was supposed to get, so it seemed to me that it took forever to thicken somewhat. I did add cheese to it and this did cause it to thicken quite a bit. I spooned it over grilled shrimp and broccoli, served on a baked potato. This was quite good and rich tasting. I am so glad to now know the basic cream sauce recipe. It has such versatility! Thanks bridgettels! Made in participation with My 3 Chefs 2012.
