White sauce is a very versatile and easy sauce. The moment I think of this sauce baked vegetables and pasta comes into my mind. My family loves pasta in white sauce. Believe me it is so easy that takes just 10-15 minutes to make.
Butter 2 tbsp
Flour 2 tbsp
Garlic crushed 2 cloves
Milk 2 cups
Cheese grated 1/4cup
Bay leaf 1
Salt To taste
Pepper powder 1/2 tsp
Take butter in a pan. Add garlic and sauté till the raw smell goes off. Take care it do not get brown. Add flour and stir to cook on medium
low flame. Cook till a pleasant aroma comes out. Add boiled and cooled milk but keep stirring to avoid lumps formed. When thicken add cheese, salt and pepper.
This sauce thickens faster after it cools down. If it becomes too thick add some milk and heat for 1-2 minutes.
Note: You can add herbs of your choice like oregano, basil, thyme or rosemary. This sauce can be made for baked vegetables and pasta a day ahead.Add to Favourites
