#86 Pink Sauce

A yummy sauce for pasta.

1 -12oz can evaporated milk
1/4 cup milk
2 T butter
2 T flour
1 1/4 cup red pasta sauce (I like to use Traditional flavor Prego)
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
2 T parmesan cheese
Chopped up Chicken Breast (optional)

Make a roux by melting the butter in a medium sized sauce pan and adding flour.  Stir together until flour and butter make a paste.  Add evaporated milk to roux and continue stirring until sauce begins to thicken.  Add red pasta sauce, chicken(optional) and cheeses and continue to stir.  Add milk if sauce becomes too thick.  Salt and pepper to taste and serve over pasta.
