This was absolutely gorgeous, the flavour was awesome. I did add a little cornflour at the end, and I mean little, as I found the sauce a bit thin. Apart from that, it was amazing the flavour was so good. I served mine over garlic and spinach tagliatelle and topped with grated parmesan cheese and extra fresh parsley. I would recommend making extra as all my family asked for more:) Wonderful post and this will definitely become a regular in our house. Huge thumbs up by all.
