Recipe Story

I learned how to make a white sauce 30 years ago in fundamental class of cooking. My kids were raised on it, it is simple to make, rich and delicious! This recipe I made up to revamp it to not have milk or white flour. It is a gluten free recipe.

When my daughter was about 5 she was at my friends house playing with her girls. The mom made pasta with butter and parmesan, an easy way to make it for kids. My daughter innocently asked for a white sauce, please! My friend laughed and said only my daughter would ask that!
