Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease an 8" casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour until thickened. Gradually stir in the milk. Bring sauce to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and let sauce simmer until thickened, stirring continuously.
