  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • In a sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add flour and whisk constantly for about 30 seconds until a paste forms (called a roux).
  • Slowly add the milk, being careful not to burn the roux. Whisk constantly until it becomes thick, about 1 minute.
  • Add salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese. Stir constantly until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from heat immediately and add to cooked chicken, pasta, fish, or vegetables.
