Cooking basics: White sauce

White sauce is wonderful, because its quite easy to make (as long as you aren't totally averse to stirring) and you can use it as pasta sauce, in mac and cheese (more on that later), in lasagne... probably other things but that's all I've gotten to so far!

*oh hello, one day when the white sauce isn't quite so delicious and I am not quite so hungry, a picture will go here!*


For two people to have with pasta

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
Cheese. As much cheese as your heart desires.

1. Melt the butter over a low heat

2. Add the flour, stir for one minute.

3. Take off the heat and add a little milk, stir over heat until thick. Repeat until all milk is added.

4. Add grated cheese and stir to combine. You can raise the heat a little at this point to help it melt faster and save your arm from falling off.
