This sauce was quite tasty on Gnocchi I. To begin any white sauce I always cook the butter with the flour for a few minutes to eliminate that floury taste sometimes associated with white sauces then add the liquid. This sauce thickened a bit more than I wanted so I thinned it with a splash of white wine. Also I didn't use measure the peppercorns just used a few good turns of the pepper mill. Omitted the nutmeg but used cayenne instead. Very good with freshly grated Parm... thanks!
I liked the taste of this--flavorful but mild. I'd suggest using only 1 Tbsp of flour since the sauce DOES get rather thick and pepper instead of peppercorns since I don't like eating them or picking them out. I sprinkled chicken with lemon pepper seasoning garlic powder and onion powder and baked it in the oven ahead of time then cut up and put in the sauce after it was done. I served over penne.
This recipe is fabulous and easy. It is a great garlic base that leaves plenty of room for experimentation. I agree that it asks for way too much peppercorn I only add about 1/3-1/2 and in my opinion that flavor can be added at the table. I have tried this dish several different ways: firstly marinade some chicken breasts in Italian dressing and grill then dice and toss into the pasta (I like to use angel hair) serve with bread a salad and a nice wine and you have a great date meal. I have also stirred in chopped or whole grilled shrimp or served it on the side with shrimp scampi as well as steak. For a low fat alternative I use 2% milk and light cheeses. Just be creative and have fun with it!
I used this sauce to re-create a dish that I love at a local Italian recipe. I did not roast the garlic but added less. I also added only 1 Tablespoon of flour. Finally I used fresh ground pepper instead of the peppercorns. I put the sauce over sauteed chicken artichoke hearts sauteed spinach and tomato. I put in about 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese at the end. I served it over gnocchi. It was delicious!
What a delicious sauce! I didn't have any nutmeg but it still turned out wonderful. I served it over linguine with some Cajun grilled chicken. A very versatile sauce...next time we'll try it with salmon.
I'm only giving it 3 stars cause if you follow the recipe it doesn't thicken untill it's cooled and it didn't have alot of garlic flavor and the pepper flavor was non existent but with a few changes it makes a good sauce
