I never see the need for butter in white sauce. (usually a white sauce calls for butter and flour to be mixed together then add milk) Simply put a few tb flour into the saucepan, add a little milk and blend until smooth, then add more milk to make enough sauce. Add cheese or seasonings and you don’t notice the lack of butter.

With Cream based sauces (such as for pasta), often evaporated milk will give a similar taste, with less fat.
