  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.

    Place flour in a large saucepan. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended. Cook over medium heat 8 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Add provolone cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper; cook 3 minutes or until cheese melts, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in roasted vegetables and macaroni.
