Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Melt butter in a medium nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots; cook 2 minutes or until tender. Reduce heat; add flour to pan, and cook 5 minutes or until smooth and golden, stirring constantly.

Gradually add remaining warm milk, about 1/2 cup at a time, until mixture is smooth, stirring constantly with a whisk. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and cook until smooth and thickened. Remove from heat. Cover surface of milk mixture with plastic wrap; set aside.

FABULOUS!!! BIG hit with the vegetarian house guests. Be prepared to have several pots going at the same time and being in the kitchen for 1 1/2 hours to make this but it is worth it. Next time I am increasing the sauce to 4 cups of milk, a little less than 1 Tbsp of more butter, and 1 Tbsp of flour - 8/9/10
Got this recipe from cooking light and just happened to search to see if it was on here. This was EXCELLENT! I loved the white sauce combined with the spinach and squash. It was very time consuming to make, but worth the effort. Decent sized serving and filling too. Served with salads. - 3/15/10
