shredded mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
chopped sun-dried tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
This is a very good sauce for tortellini. The only changes I made were to use walnuts instead of pine nuts and to add approximately 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. The garlic powder definitely improved the sauce. Initially I wasn't sure which type of sun-dried tomatoes to use. I decided used dry packed sun-dried tomatoes, next time I will use oil packed sun-dried tomatoes because the dry packed ones stayed very firm and I didn't like that texture. In the future I will also leave the nuts out of the recipe. I look forward to making this again.
kind of bland
Five stars plus! This sauce really fits its name - amazing! My very Italian household was raving about it. Like everyone else, we added garlic, the ommission of which was the only flaw of this recipe. We used sundried tomatoes in oil and I commonly substitue half and half for cream, just to save on fat. I was a bit concerned about the addition of mozarella, but it worked perfectly. Smother a bowl of gnocci with this sauce - you will not regret it!
A great recipe that can be made healthier by using low fat evaporated milk, rather than cream. Evaporated milk has thickness to it, like cream. I also used less cheese to make it healthier--it surrenders a little bit of taste, but also a lot of calories. Thanks for the recipe.
This dish is wonderful. I was trying to find a recipe for one of my favorite meals from a local Italian restaurant, and this was perfect! I did make a few changes. I substituted a grated Italian 6-cheese blend (mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, asiago, fontina and romano)for the 1/2 C mozzarella. I also browned 1/4 lb. of Italian sausage in garlic and added that to the cheese sauce. The sauce is salty enough, so I did not any additional salt. Absolutely wonderful!
A really nice recipe, very similar to the kind you can buy in the deli section of your grocery store. I added a few things to this recipe: 1-chopped onion, 2-gloves chopped garlic and fresh sliced mushrooms (didn't really measure how many I used). I sauteed them in a mixture of olive oil and butter. I also did add about 5 large tsp. of tomato paste because I found the sauce needed a kick. I cut the sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil) with kitchen scissors and boiled them in water for about 5 minutes. This really helped to soften them up, they were not chewy at all. I also omitted the pine nuts.
I'll be making this one again for sure!
This stuff is great! Quick too! We had it over cheese stuffed tortellini and it was sooo good! I bought sun-dried tomatoes in a jar, drained the oil off and put them in a food processer for a few seconds. Everyone loved it- and I have picky eaters! Had a little leftover sauce, so I put it over pasta and it was very good heated up too! Will make again and again!
This sauce has become one of my favorite. If you like creamy, cheesy taste this recipe is the one for you. I've tryed it on fettuccini, and meat ravioli...Delicious
