Make the Provolone Sauce:
In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour to form a roux. Gradually add milk, whisking continuously to prevent lumps. Continue cooking until the sauce thickens. Reduce heat to low and stir in shredded provolone cheese until melted and smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
