VARIATIONS

 CHEESE SAUCE: Prepare the white sauce and stir in 50 g of mozeralla or Parmesan cheese

SIMPLE WHITE SAUCE:  just simply omit onion,bay leaf,parsley.

 

the proportions of butter and flour remains the same even if you want to increase the quantity of sauce.

All you have to do is increase the amount of milk used.

 This is the key sauce used mostly in combination with pastas and lasagna.
