Smoked Provolone Cheese Sauce

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
8 ounces smoked provolone cheese, shredded or torn
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter.  Add flour and whisk; allow flour to cook for 2-3 minutes to cook out the ‘floury’ taste.  Add milk, salt and pepper.  Stir to combine.    Add cheese and stir constantly until you have a smooth mixture. 

Reduce heat to low, until ready to serve, stirring occasionally.
