This is a delicious sauce! It is thick and creamy and works with nearly anything. However, I like it the best on pasta, so here we go!

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
3 and 3/4 cups milk
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
About 1/2 a tsp of chopped basil

Add the milk gradually. Once it is in, whisk occasionally until the mixture begins to boil. Begin to whisk frequently. You will notice the mixture thickening into a creamy consistency.

Step 3:

Add the Parmesan cheese. Turn off the burner and incorporate the basil and salt. Let sit for about 3 minutes, then serve over seafood, pasta, veggies, or whatever you desire!

It is 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.

Oh, thanks for telling me! And there is actually a very large taste difference between the two

Uh, your list of ingredients doesn't mention any Parmesan cheese.

And if you leave out the flour and substitute Parmesan cheese you're awfully close to good ol' ALFREDO sauce....
