Helpful hints

  • This sauce is good served with rice or pasta. It can also be used with leftover meat, fish or poultry.
  • The original recipe contained liquid nondairy creamer instead of milk. This was changed because the majority of nondairy creamers now contain phosphate additives, an undesirable ingredient for those following a kidney diet. Some brands of half & half creamer also contain phosphate additives.
