Woody mushrooms and tangy sage are offset by sweet shallots. A great sauce to serve on FarmGirl's Grilled Wild Boar Chops or over rice.

Oooo morels can be expensive, but it was a birthday dinner so he deserved it! ;-) I used Mushroom broth to reconstitute the morels and threw the left over liquid back in to make the sauce. I enriched the sauce with ~1/4 cup of heavy cream and served it over rib eye steaks. Rich I know! It was delicious. I would love to try this same sauce over pasta. The sage seems like a lot, but I grow it so I used lots of little tender baby leaves and they really add a freshness to the sauce. You can eat them whole like this. YUM! Will make again.
