The most versatile cream sauce! It is great on it's own or as a base, which can be easily be jazzed up by adding chunks of smoked salmon, grated cheese, or carmelized onions - yum! It is perfect for pasta or served over steamed veggies. Also try it as a delicious, creamy layer in a vegetarian lasagna or mix this sauce into a veggie puree for an instant creamed soup.
