This recipe is my oldest son’s favorite pre-game meal. Coupled with some roasted chicken, whole grain garlic bread and light ceasar salad, it’s the perfect mix of comfort food and fuel 2-3 hours before exercise.
2 cups 1 or 2% milk (Can also use almond milk)
2 Tbs of butter
2 Tbs of flour
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp garlic salt
¼ - ½ cup fresh parmesan cheese, finely shredded
Sliced cooked chicken breast (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Melt butter over medium heat in a non-stick saucepan. Add flour and salt and stir while heating (approximately 2 minutes). Slowly whisk in milk and heat on medium until it begins to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese and garlic salt. Start with ¼ cup of parmesan cheese and add more cheese as needed. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately on al dente pasta with optional sliced chicken and salad or steamed broccoli.
