Number of Servings: 4


    1 Cup Sim MIlk
    1 1/2 Tablespoons Butter
    1 1/2 Tablespoons Flour
    3 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
    1 Dash Pepper
    Crushed Garlic (to taste)


The key here is patience, add all the ingredients graduall! Melt the butter in saucepan on stove top on medium heat. Gradually whisk in flour. This will create a yellow paste. Gradually add milk, whisking until incorporated and no lumps present. Continue whisking until hot-usually 3 to 5 minutes. The longer ou cook the base (without the cheese) the thicker the sauce will be. Add parmesan cheese slowly, again whisking until incorporated. Add crushed garli and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.

    I have a question for those that have tried this recipe. Would this make a nice thick enough sauce for a pizza? - 1/2/12

    I made some adjustments, 1Tbsp and 1/2 tsp of crushed garlic plus garlic powder and added some beef stock. I served this with some left over roast, roasted broccoli and a little bit of pasta and it was DELISH!! - 3/1/14
