Pasta with Your White Sauce Creation

Pasta with Your White Sauce Creation
(4-6 servings)


2 tbsp. Butter
2 cloves Garlic, fine chop
½ cup Shallots, fine chop (can sub onions instead)
1 cup White Wine
1 cup Heavy Cream
Your Creation Items (see note)
12 oz. Cooked Pasta, your choice


In a large (3-5 qt.) sauté pan, melt butter over medium heat.  Add the garlic and shallots to the pan and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.  Stir in the wine followed by the cream and bring to a boil.  Add your creation ingredients and heat through.  Combine the cooked pasta with the mixture in the pan, heat an additional minute and then serve.

Note:               Your creation ideas can include any item you like but use cooked
                           meats or protein.  This protein could be chicken, bacon, pancetta
                           or shrimp as some ideas.  Some other ingredients could be
                           mushrooms (your choice on type), roasted red peppers,
                           sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, spinach or other greens,
                           fresh herbs and various cheeses.  Use your imagination and
                           favorite foods.

Note:               If sauce is too thick, just add a little pasta water to help thin.  If it
                           is too thin, heat the sauce a little longer.

Note:               This whole cooking process should take you less than 30
                           minutes.  So this can become a quick meal for you that is
                           ever changing in taste and flavor.
