1 cup 1% milk
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 tsp. olive oil
1/2 oz parmesan cheese
2 tsp. minced garlic
Dried oregano and parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste
2.) Slowly whisk in the flour. Let the flour and fat come together into a paste (called a roux), then add in the dried herbs.
3.) Slowly whisk in the milk until the roux is fully integrated. Bring this to a boil over medium heat, which should take about 7 minutes or so.
4.) Drop the heat to low the minute the sauce begins to bubble -- it should be nice and thick now. Add the cheese, salt and pepper, and serve over your favorite pasta dishes!

I noticed this recipe didn't state how much flour. To help out any who may be wanting to try this out, a general rule when making rue is equal parts fat and flour. For this recipe, that means that you would use one tablespoon of flour. Overall a great recipe. I added a sprinkle of onion powder, too. - 12/3/11
