Re: Any mamas here cook everything from scratch?
melt 1/2 stick of butter
Add diced half onion, and saute
Add two heaping tbsp flour
Stir really well until all flour is incorporated
Add two cups warm milk, a ladleful at a time.
Keep stirring until it's smooth and thick and yummy
Add a few grinds of pepper
Add half a cup of parmesan, shredded or grated
Stir for a minute or so
Add half a cup of Gruyere, shredded
Stir a minute or so, until starting to really melt in
Add a few tbsp of crumbly blue cheese
Keep stirring until all cheese melted in
Add chopped sun dried tomatoes and some chives to taste
Add cooked pasta - I add half a box if I am loading it up with other stuff
You usually don't need salt bc of all the cheese
For non- vegetarians reading this - I add cooked chopped andouille sausage and cooked shredded chicken.
For veg - I have often wondered about adding baked tofu glazed in something smoky to mimic the andouille sausage.
