“Another great recipe that I adapted to be "meatless" from Everyday with Rachel Ray. To make the white sauce, I actually had to use whole wheat pastry flour and skim milk, because that is what I had on hand. I think it turned out great, BUT feel free to use the standard white flour and whole milk. Also, watch the heat on the poblano peppers. My peppers were a bit on the small side so I roasted 5 instead of 4!! My first attempt at this recipe came out a bit spicy for Lauren, but PERFECT for me. Make sure you scape ALL the seeds out before adding to the sauce if you not a fan of too much heat : >”
