I was looking for something to serve alongside some chicken the other day and decided to whip up some pasta with cheese sauce. As I was looking through my cabinet for some inspiration, I ran across my little jar of smoked paprika. I'm a pretty big mac & cheese fan but sometimes I like to spice things up a little bit and this turned out perfect! Not too spicy....just a little bit to give it some kick. Super good!!! I used this with cooked pasta but you could ladle it over chicken and it would be great!
Parmesan Pasta Sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
Whisk in the flour and stir for 1 - 2 minutes.
Add the milk. Cook and stir until thickened. Stir in the smoked paprika and salt and pepper.
Remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese until melted.
Pour over cooked pasta.
