After perfecting this recipe I will never buy another jar of white pastabsauce again! By adding different cheeses and spices you can transform and customize this sauce for any pasta!

Bring to a boil and gradually add flour. Cook flour down for 3-5 minutes. If you desire a thicker sauce add more flour.
