White Sauce or Cheddar White Sauce

"For use in my Vegetable Melange Au Gratin recipe (#111644). Great for vegetables, omelets, souffles. For a richer white sauce, substitute light cream for milk, omitting salt. Can be made thinner for soups."

    I am desperately searching for a mozzarella cheese sauce recipe that will copycat Ragu Creamy Mozzarella Sauce. They have discontinued that and my 6 year old grandson LOVED it. I have tried making a white sauce and adding mozzarella cheese but it doesn't taste anywhere the same. If someone can help me I would surely appreciate it.

    This was the perfect consistency for mac and cheese. The only thing I did differently was warm the milk before adding it. This is perfect. Next time baked potatoes and steamed veggies.

    I doubled the cheese (I used WHITE CHEDDAR) It was AWESOME! We all LOVED it! Definitely will use this in the future for Mac & Cheese. I also used it w/o cheese as a cream sauce for over cauliflower. Very tasty.

Recently, cooking has become my favorite hobby! It is hands-on, involves reading, and new ideas and people. Also, my honey is sure happy about it (but not the weight he has gained)!
