Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a non-stick skillet, melt the butter and brown the almonds until golden brown; be very careful as they will burn quickly.
  2. As soon as the almonds are nicely browned, add the Amaretto; be extremely careful as it should and will flame up for about 10 seconds or so.
  3. After about 30 to 40 seconds you will have very little liquid in the pan (it will be dark brown).
  4. Add the cream, tomato paste, and the crushed bouillon cube and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to a rolling simmer and reduce by half (about 12 minutes) stirring often.
  6. The finished sauce should have a beige, ever so slight pink color and coat the back of a spoon.
  7. NOTE: If the Amaretto doesn't flare up in the pan, don't worry! Your sauce will be fine.
