Simple White Pasta Sauce

I like calling this one an emergency pasta sauce as well since I was in a pinch with no tomatoes. Here is a simple white sauce that is super easy to make.


  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup chicken broth (or you can use 1 can but thickening takes longer)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • In a medium sauce pan melt down the butter. Cook the garlic in the melted butter for about 1-2 minutes.
  • Start whisking in the flour so that it begins to thicken, then slowly add the milk and broth into the mix. Continue to stir until it boils (medium heat).
  • Once it has thickened to your desired level add in the parm, salt and pepper. Cook down for another 10 minutes.
  • Serve over your choice of cooked pasta.
