Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; saute garlic until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Lower heat to medium and gradually stir flour into garlic-butter mixture until dissolved and smooth, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Gradually stir Parmesan cheese into garlic-flour mixture until cheese is melted and mixture is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Slowly pour milk into cheese mixture, stirring constantly, until smooth, about 5 minutes; season with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until sauce reaches desired consistency, 5 to 10 minutes.

Well, the kids gobbled it up and asked for more, so that's a big win for Mom! Also, it was very easy and quick to throw together--I had all the ingredients on-hand, added some chicken and carrots and voilá! Thanks for a good dinner in a pinch!

delicious! although you definitely have to add the milk slowly or the roux will seize up on you! I added extra garlic & some garlic salt! also added fresh Parmesano regiano because I had a block on hand :) and some extra milk because mine got very thick very fast, overall very good!

We enjoyed this simple sauce served over tri-colored gnocchi and 'Southwestern Corned Beef Quesadillas!' from AR. I made the sauce up in the morning, as directed. After cooling it and refrigerating for the afternoon, it thickened, as I knew it would. I just reheated on low and added additional milk, slowly, until it had the consistency I was looking for. A really nice recipe that I will be using again.

Liked making a sauce without cream. I served it over pasta with peas, sauteed mushrooms, onions and peppers.

it's a roux with milk and garlic added. Too grainy due to the amount of flour to sauce ratio.

It was super easy and delish. Everyone loved it.

Simple, quick and easily made with on hand ingredients, this works well for a quick supper. For our tastes, I would have preferred a little more garlic and freshly grated parmesan cheese, so I would increase the amounts in the future.
