This is such a versatile recipe ! It always comes out creamy and flavorful. You can use any oil you would like. Any mix of hard cheese. Great meal for when the family comes over ! Or a week nigh...

I substituted 2 T of butter and used 2 T flour and used 4 cloves of garlic. Served over cheese ravioli and broccoli. YUM!
