Peas in Cheese Sauce

Untitled

This year for Christmas I asked everyone what dish they would like me to cook for Christmas dinner.  My youngest said macaroni and cheese.  I figured it would be too many carbs for dinner since I was already making mashed potatoes and gravy.  So I changed his request up a little bit to get some green vegetables in the meal.

Peas in Cheese Sauce

4 1/2 teaspoons butter
4 1/2 teaspoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1 1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup cubed Velveeta
2 packages (10 oz. each) frozen peas, thawed

In a large pan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add cheese, stir until melted. Stir in peas, cook 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through.
