    I LOVE this sauce!!! I have been using a recipe just the same for years. It is so perfectly matched for ravoli, tortellini or caramellone and just needs to be garnished with some fresh chopped parsely. Yum!

    This was quite nice. Great to have a homemade cheese sauce to use in recipes. I used it in broc/rice casserole and also made a lovely spinach dip. Thank you!


Since I do not have a Premium Membership, I am unable to thank all you folks personally for trying and reviewing my recipes. So in order to show my appreciation, I will thank you by trying and reviewing one of YOUR recipes. Now, a little about me . . . It's hard to believe I've been a member for over 7 years now! Once I discovered Zaar, I never looked back at the other sites. This place is truly like family, sitting around sharing great recipes, helpful hints and just chit-chatting about our daily lives. Hubby and I were fortunate enough to be able to retire early and now enjoy traveling in our motorhome :) . Our travels have taken us all over this great country of ours and meeting new and exciting people along the way is an extra bonus. We are blessed. We usually alternate between Florida Keys and Arizona for the winters. The rest of the year, you can find us just about any place. We love our home on the lake, but there is a bit of gypsy in us both and we hit the road as much as we possibly can. I subscribe to Taste of Home and own EVERY Southern Living Annual since 1979. I guess my biggest pet peeve is people who are negative all the time. Because I enjoy life so much, I try to avoid such people. Life is too short.
