Quick Cheese Sauce

Melt 4 Tbsp. of butter in a pan (medium heat); add 4 Tbsp. of flour, 1/2 tsp. of salt, and blend. Then whisk in 1 cup of milk, then 1 cup of cheese and seasonings ( I used cheddar and a dash of mustard, but Parm. and oregano would rock the Italian thing). KEEP STIRRING IT until it’s all melty and smooth. YUM. More liquid for a thinner sauce; more flour for a thinner one. Serving-size-wise, probably 1 Tbsp of butter and flour with 1/4 cup of liquid (broth works too) and cheese per person. It took as long to make as it took the noodles to cook.

    YUM. That sounds good and WAY better than the Weight Watchers recipe for mac and cheese that I’m making tonight that calls for *shudder* Velveeta.
