Easy Cheesy Sauce

Easy Cheesy Sauce


 You Will Need: (2 servings)


200ml skimmed milk/unsweetened soya milk

1 Tablespoon cornflour

40g Weight Watchers reduced fat cheese.


(This sauce works out to 3pp/approx.120kcal per portion)


Simply put all 3 ingredients into a measuring jug. Stir to make sure the cornflour isn't stuck to the bottom. Don't worry about any lumps at this stage.

Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir well. Microwave 1 more minute. Stir well.

Season with some black pepper and a little nutmeg or mace if you like.

This should produce a perfect cheese sauce.



(You can make this on the hob- simply

stir continuously as it comes to the boil).

VARIATIONS 


Obviously, there are loads of variations on a theme, but here's 3 to get you started. I'll add photos and other ideas as I devise them...

1. Carbonara Sauce


Divide the prepared Easy Cheesy Sauce into 2 equal portions.

Slice a few mushrooms and microwave for 2 minutes. Drain of any moisture and add to the hot sauce.

Snip 2 slices of Parma Ham with scissors into each portion of sauce. The heat of the sauce will warm the ham through. 


This makes the sauce 5pp/approx.220kcal per portion
