We were having pasta one night, and I was trying to figure out something to go with it, saw that we had all the ingredients for this sauce and whipped it up in no time. It's now a family favorite and we make it all the time! It's really easy and sooooo good with pasta, chicken, fish, nearly anything! Read More

Quick and dirty sauce; minimal ingredients needed. I added basil oregano and fresh garlic slivers to add more taste. I also topped the pasta w/ sauteed basil & lemon chicken breast. Read More

This is a great cream sauce recipe - either plain or to start from. I doubled the recipe and served it on ham/asparagus pasta. I did add a lot of fresh ground pepper. I think next time I prepare this - I will add either shallots mushrooms and/or fresh parsley that has been sauteed in butter - after the sauce is thickened - and then serve it on angel hair pasta or "bird nest" pasta. Perhaps the reviewer before me didn't like it because they didn't use their favorite wine? I used a medium sweet white wine this time - but will use a drier one next time. Read More

You have got to be kidding me...There is way too much salt in this sauce. I should have used my better judgement and only used half but I dumped it all in AS PER RECIPE. Sorry to say but that was a huge mistake. It tasted like ocean water! I will try the reduced version next time but am rating this based on the original recipe..GADZOOKS! Read More

This sauce was so easy, throw it all together and voila! No mixing steps. I was concerned it would come out lumpy, ended up smooth as a baby's butt. I gave this a 4 because of the lack of flavour. I added garlic and chives to mine. Great base sauce. I served if over bow tie pasta, shrimp and Brocoli. Yumm Read More

Very good! It was tasty, yet practical. I served this over chicken and my fiance loved it. I only added half the salt,and it was still great. I also left out a pinch of the flour, only because I like a thinner cream sauce. This is a keeper!!! Read More

For what it is it is just great! A quick dead simple white wine sauce that tastes lovely. I thought it worked well over some zucchini and green peppers and pasta but I'm sure it'll have a lot of uses. Thanks alot! Read More
