WHITE WINE GARLIC (OR MUSHROOM) CREAM SAUCE: EASY, QUICK AND DELICIOUS

I was quite surprised how many people asked for this recipe when I posted this photo on IG & FB. So, 10 months after my last post, we finally have a new entry on SingerTravelista.com (more like SingerStayAtHomeDuringThePandemicWithTheBaby 🙂 )

This cream sauce is one of my very favorites because it is so easy to make. It tastes as if you’re at a very nice restaurant (minus the steep price, plus you get to control the ingredients!).

Over the years I looked at many recipes, simplified them and made my own version (this is what I always do with recipes, haha). I use whatever pasta I have on hand (in the photo below it’s actually potato gnocchi), and usually make cheese bread on the side.

  • ground pepper to taste

Directions

  • On a medium-high heat in a pan melt butter until it starts bubbling
  • add crushed garlic, stir and cook for about a minute, then add salt

  • add cream, stir, and bring to almost boiling, turn off the heat OPTIONAL
  • add nutmeg, paprika, chopped up parsley, and Parmesan, and stir
  • It’s ready! Pour over your favorite pasta or you can bring the pasta/gnocchi straight into the pan and gently stir.

    Hope you enjoy it, and please let me know if you make it!


    It’s fun to change things up occasionally, so I also use mushrooms. Any mushrooms will do. I have used regular white or Cremini or Shitake or Chanterelle or… whatever you like! 🙂

    In this photo it is Tuscan Seggiano pasta with oyster mushrooms.


    And in the photo below it is potato gnocchi with shitake mushrooms.
