Basil Cream Sauce

A very simple recipe. Easy to double, and you can add whatever spices you want (or make it without the basil… for all you who make fun of my love for basil, hehe). Perfect over whole wheat penne and chicken.

  • 2 Tbsp butter/margarine
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 C milk
  • 1 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter/margarine in a small saucepan on low heat. Whisk in the flour until it’s smooth and creamy. Slowly whisk in milk, and turn up to medium heat. Heat for several minutes while stirring, until sauce is thick. Add basil, salt and pepper.
