3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt

3. Combine flour and broth in small bowl, stirring with whisk; add broth mixture to pan; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium; simmer 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

4. Add butter, if desired; when it melts, add salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm until ready to serve.
