White Cream Sauce for Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lord Neuf

This recipe was taught to me by a friend. A very simplistic recipe which gives you many options on what to serve it with. I've had this with ziti, and prefer it with the smooth kind rather than the ridged kind. But any Macaroni product will do.

Nice base for adding favors. I used half and half as I was out of milk. I added mushrooms, garlic, spinach, basil and cherry tomatoes. I served this over penne with sliced grilled chickens and a shrimp kabob per person. Everybody liked it and it was done in no time.
