A simple recipe creates a delightfully light balsamella (white) sauce!

Ingredients
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1 cup milk or half & half (for a really rich sauce, spring for heavy cream)
1/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated
1 tomato (Roma or small), sliced into rounds
2 Tbsp parsley, chopped

Make a roux of the butter and flour.

Add the milk and whisk until smooth and creamy.

Whisk in cheese and remove from heat.

Stir in the parsley and pour over pasta. Garnish with tomato slices and serve.

That sounds SO simple and SO delicious. How does this differ from an Alfredo, I wonder (have to go read a recipe for it). Thank you!
