  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups milk or heavy cream (I used fat free half & half)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 12 ounces pasta noodles for serving


  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Continue to stir over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until butter reaches golden brown color (once brown move on to the next step right away so it doesn't burn).
  • Sprinkle flour over melted butter. Stir until mixture clumps together. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil (stirring constantly) and whisk until mixture is smooth.
  • Stir in salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Add parmesan cheese and stir until melted and combined with the sauce.
  • Serve sauce over your favorite noodles. (fettuccine noodles are pictured) Store chilled in airtight container up to 1 week.
