VERY EASY, FREEZABLE WHITE SAUCE

I have been known to occasionally use a jar of white sauce, if I only need a very small quantity for a lasagne. However it is good to know how to make this simple recipe. This sauce is a good base for macaroni, lasagne, moussaka, parsley sauce, tuna moray… the list goes on.
