Base White Sauce Recipe

Here is a great white sauce base recipe, that will have you eating more pasta. Just add creativity.

1 part Butter
1 cup Milk (may need more)
1 cup Flour

Start by getting your ingredients ready, then start cooking your pasta according to its directions.
Then with equal parts, I used 4 TBS of each, add the butter to a non-stick pan until it is just melted. Add your flour until it is well coated.
Then slowly pour in your milk while stirring, once you add the milk, you want to keep stirring throughout the rest of the process. Your mixture should look like this.
If it is too thick, add some more milk and keep stirring, I used up 2 cups total. The goal is to have it simmer with bubbles popping for 1 minute, then once it gets to the consistency you like you can remove it from heat and serve. To spruce things up a bit, I sauteed up some Broccoli and Peas in a pan and added them to the pasta dish. I used enough water to cover the bottom of the pan, so the broccoli could absorb some of it. To finish off the meal, I plated it and put some Quatrro Formaggio cheese on top and some chopped tomatoes. Enjoy!
