This was pretty good. I sliced some baby portobello mushrooms and added them to the sauce for about 5 minutes of cooking time. After tasting the cheese sauce I did not detect much ranch flavor so I doubled the amount of ranch seasoning. This is a nice variation to a basic cheese sauce. I will make it again and probably add a little sriracha sauce to kick up the flavor a notch. Read More
