  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth.

    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.
