  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 large rutabaga, diced and cooked (4 to 5 cups diced)

Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat; stir in flour. Continue to cook and stir until smooth; gradually stir in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add cheese and stir until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place rutabaga in a shallow, lightly buttered baking dish; pour sauce over rutabaga.
