Served over pasta & was delish! Will finish it off with a splash of brandy right before plating next time. I really want that brandy flavor.
Made this tonight and served it over pasta. I didn't have chives but that didn't matter - this was quick easy but the best part was that it was delicious!. Definitely a keeper
I tried to cheat and used half and half instead of whipping cream, and smart balance margerine instead of butter, so the sauce was way too thin. It was still very flavorful though and I loved it. Served it over a bed of quinoa with roasted asparagus with feta on the side. Yum! Also, I halved the recipe and it was more than enough for two when served with a healthy amount of quinoa.
