This is simple and good. Also, important to note I already had the ingredients on hand. I used scallops instead and it was just as delicious. Thank you.

I put a lid on for about 6 minutes after I turned off the stove to help thicken it. I also added a about a tablespoon of flour.

I was really surprised at how great this came out! It was fantastic. I added some garlic powder to flavor it up a bit!

yummy but never got thick...I think the milk must need to be tweeked as it was still liquid after boiling.

Like most of the other reviewers, I decided to add sauteed garlic, mushrooms, and chicken and chicken to this recipe for more kick. I also had a jar of "four pepper blend" laying around, so I used that instead of white pepper. I love the sauce, but you MUST add seasonings, because on its own it's terribly bland. This was my first time making pasta sauce, so I wasn't sure how many noodles I should use. I used about 1/3 of a pound of linguine and am very happy with the proportion. Great recipe!

This is a good base sauce but as a sauce on it's own, I would find very boring. I dropped a little garlic in the butter, added the flour then cooked that for at LEAST a minute, to get rid of the flour taste. After the sauce was made I dropped in a few teaspoons of premade Pesto sauce from TJ's and about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of parmesan. A winner for a simple base sauce.

Thank you so much for an amazing recipe :) i minced some garlic and added in mushrooms. I also added to the sauce some corriander, a very tiny pinch of cinnamon, a small pinch of paprika and some seasonings. It turned out great. I also added two cubes of low fat cream cheese. But it thickened so much so i just added in more milk. It was marvellous. Thank you so much, that was really the white sauce i've been searching for :)

Tasty, simple cheese sauce. I served it over penne pasta and chicken tenders and everybody enjoyed it.

Nice and easy recipe. Just needed white sauce for some mushrooms, so didn't add shrimp, but would certainly try it later. Added garlic for extra flavour. Will make again.
