1 whole head
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 cups
ground mixed peppercorns
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'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
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!
Delicious. Cheated and used jarred roasted garlic as a timesaver. Also used heavy cream.
This was great! I served it over Blackened Salmon Fillets (from allrecipes) and chilie flavored pasta. It is worth the time!
This is superb. Roasting the garlic is key. I usually double the recipe. Also, I cook the flour and butter together first. Very creamy and flavorful.
I had some leftover baked garlic and was looking for a way to use it...this sauce was terrific. So yummy!! Thanks. Susan
