How to make it

  • Heat milk and cream in a heavy bottom saucepan until it begins to simmer.
  • Turn off heat.
  • Slowly whip in cheese, then remove from heat.
  • Place egg yolks in a seprate bowl and slowly whip in a portion of the hot milk and cream mixture.
  • Slowly add egg mixture back back into remaining cream mixture.
  • Place back on very low heat and continually stir until simmering.
  • Take sauce off heat so it thickens.
  • (This will increase temperature of egg yolks, known as tempering.)
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve over your favorite pasta.
