Recipe by Amber D. Marcu
"An ambrosial sauce that is irresistible! This is excellent atop smashed potatoes or as a sauce for long, flat pasta. Adjust seasonings for a variety of complex flavors! Common substitutions include paprika and cayenne in lieu of the Italian herbs used here!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

minced fresh rosemary
white wine, divided
sea salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
This is good, it's just needs more time to cook down to a sauce consistency. It'll take more like 15 minutes rather than 5, so just give it some time, rather adding a roux affecting the delicate flavor of the creamy sauce. I made this and put in a double boiler on simmer to wait for the meat to cook. I did add a splash of sherry, but otherwise followed the ingredient listing. Forgot to add the parmesan, but it was good even without it.
As written this sauce is too lose for me (you could cook much longer to reduce the cream, but I prefer a roux), and too much rosemary (I reduced to one teaspoon of fresh so it wasn't like a pine branch), also needed other adjustments and additions to make a really good sauce. Add flour equal to butter after sautéing vegies to make a roux, add one cup rich beef broth then heavy cream and wine, simmer till thickened and serve.
6 out of 6 family members ate this tonight so I consider that a great success! I did double it since we were having it atop pasta rather than meat or potatooes. It definitely needs much more than 5 minutes to cook down and in the end I added a little cornstarch to thicken it. I didn't have any fettuccine on hand, so I opted for bow tie and it made for a good substitute.
Excellent recipe, didn't have heavy cream so I used half n half. I also decreased the garlic to 1/2 clove fresh minced rosemary to about 1/2-1 tsp. I did have to let it simmer about 10 min or so in order to thicken.
I didn't have heavy cream or white wine or shallots. lol So, I used a yellow onion instead. I did use a Hungarian Green duck wine. For the cream, I used a combo of whole milk, yogurt and 1 tblsp cornstarch (thickening agent). I needed to use more pepper than usual, to counter-act the sweetness from the Green Duck, as well as a 1/2 tsp of roasted garlic.
After adding the milk/yogurt, I turned it down to med-low after it started to boil at medium high, so it wouldn't scorch. I let it simmer for about 10 minutes and it has a nice, rich consistency.
