Creamy White Wine Sauce

I came across a delicious, easy-to-make white wine sauce I felt compelled to share.  The only ingredient you may have to run out and get is heavy whipping cream!

In a small to medium-sized saucepan, add 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 2 tablespoons of flour, and 3/4 to a cup of your favorite white wine.  Stir well while heating over medium heat until boiling, then add a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of dried parsley.  (Freshly-dried parsley tastes the best, but dried parsley from your spice rack will work fine in a pinch!)  Stir well.  If desired, you can even add a dash–or two–of cayenne pepper for pizzazz.  Reduce heat and let the mixture cool to a warm serving temperature, stirring occasionally.  Pour over your feast, and enjoy!

Regardless of the white wine you choose to use, this sauce goes very well with chicken, including Cornish game hens, and potato dishes.  This sauce also makes a terrific pasta topper!  Try it with traditional pasta dishes, including tortellini and ravioli.  And, to tie your meal into a balanced little bow, don’t forget to serve your guests the wine you used in your sauce!  Enjoy!

    Making the sauce is easy:
    The butter is heated in a large saucepan over low heat then onion is added and sautéed. Flour is blended in then the white wine and broth are poured in gradually. The mixture should be stirred continuously and brought to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Lemon zest, thyme, dill and mustard should then be stirred in and salt added to taste.
