A Rampy take on a classic Alfredo
2 TBSP Butter
15 Ramps, bulbs, stems & leaves (you can use less, but I like the strong flavor)
1 ½ TBSP All Purpose Flour
1 C Whole Milk
1 tsp Pepper
½ tsp Salt
1 C Grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
Thinly slice ramp bulbs & stems. Slice leaves in 1” strips, set aside
Sauté in 1 TBSP Butter till bulbs are nearly translucent, then add leaves. Sauté till wilted, remove from heat & set aside.
Melt 1 TBSP Butter in a sauce pan over low heat. When melted, douse Butter with Flour & vigorously whisk 3-5 minutes till homogenous. Add Milk & continue to whisk. Whisk in Ramps, Salt & Pepper.
Use a wooden spoon to stir in grated Cheese.
Use as a sauce for pasta or as a cheesy sauce for steamed vegetables
