Cooking Cheese Sauce Pasta

  1. Put all of the butter in a small-medium sized pan over medium heat! Stir a bit while you’re at it!
  2. When the butter is starting to melt add all of the garlic! Hmm
  3. When melted put on low heat and slowly add ½ flour and stir. The slower you add the flower the better; otherwise you’d get lumps. We don’t want lumps!
  4. Keep on stirring and add 1/2 of the milk.
  5. Again repeat with the flour to add all of the flour in there! While you add it, add the rest of the milk as well. Keep on stirring! Don’t forget to stir good, this is important!
  6. Now we can start adding the cheeses. Again, the slower you do this the better. Just add some cheese, stir until melted and add more cheese. Stir more until melted and add all cheese! You got this, take your time! Add some love!
  7. If the cheese doesn’t melt, put the heat a bit higher. But don’t let it burn! Keep on stirring.
  8. Add the dried paprika spices and some pepper for more flavor!
  9. Now you can serve the sauce. Use it for vegetarian cheese sauce pasta, use it in a bake or use it for any Mexican dish!
  10. Don’t forget to work out after! Your cholesterol will be on an all-time high! Enjoy!
