I made some oven BBQ'd ribs not long ago and needed something to go with them. I figured since the ribs had a cajun kick to them, I'd make a cheese sauce that did, too! Score! I poured the sauce over some cooked pasta but serving it over some veggies would be great, too!
Cajun Cheese Sauce
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (or more if you want spicy-spicy)
1 1/2 cups heavy cream or half & half
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Melt butter; remove from heat.
Whisk in flour and seasonings.
Gradually add heavy cream , stirring until well mixed.
Return to low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and smooth.
Add cheeses. Stir until smooth and well blended. Serve with pasta or vegetables.
Makes 2 cups.
