Single Serving of homemade White Sauce

We had leftover spaghetti noodles but no red sauce ( I'm not so fond of red sauce anyway.) I decided to throw together a single serving of white sauce to go with my pasta noodles and wanted to share the recipe.

Single Serving of homemade White Pasta Sauce


2-3 Tablespoons of flour (Not heaping.)

1/3 cup of Milk

1 Tablespoon of Sour Cream

1-2 pats of Butter or Margarine

1 Teaspoon of Parmesan cheese (I used the kind in the shaky jar.)

Spices: I used; Oregano, Goya Adobe All Purpose Seasoning, Garlic Salt. You can use whatever Italian spices you would like. Give a few shakes of each.

(You can add or decrease any of these ingredients to your liking.)


Use a whisk to mix everything together really well. (It's important to keep whisking while you heat the sauce or else the flour will thicken up into a dough and you don't want that!)

You can heat on the stove on low-medium heat while whisking until thick. Or the shortcut I used was to put the bowl in the microwave for 10-15 seconds, take out- whisk really well and place back in the microwave. (I repeated this about 4 x's). Then I heated my pasta noodles and poured the sauce on top. Perfect single serving!

  1. Great idea. Going to print this one out and keep it.

  2. You're welcome! It was just what I had on hand & turned out really good! I'm sure the sour cream could be optional, but it worked well adding a creaminess to the sauce, since the milk I used was fat free. :)

  3. Nice! I'll have to try it! I love alfredo sauce, and I usually just use cream, butter, lemon juice, parmesan and salt. Yours sounds good too!

  4. Thanks Lynn! I had no cream on hand so that's why I went with the skim milk and a bit of sour cream. Yours sounds good too with the lemon added. :)
