      Wonderful. I made a few changes based on personal preferences. Like a couple of reviewers before, I subbed olive oil for margarine. I also cut the parmesan cheese in half and grated some asiago cheese into the mixture. This is wonderful. A definite once in awhile, unhealthy splurge. Yum. I used cheese tortellini. Bacon or pancetta would be good sprinkled on top. Oh, I forgot. I added a half tsp onion powder.

      This white sauce was very good. It is very thick and creamy. I also substituted olive oil for the margarine and it was very very good. Reminded me of a sauce you would get on a pasta dish at a restaurant. I will definitely use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

      This sauce really surprised me.I enjoyed the flavor but instead of using regular flour I used whole wheat flour.I also did not have any garlic powder so I just roasted some minced garlic and added it to the sauce.This is a great recipe,my 10 yearold had seconds.Thanks.
