READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mmmm Tasty

When I was about eight, this sauce was "invented" by me with a little "help" from Mom. It's luxurious and velvety over pasta, especially fettucine.

Such a lovely simple sauce, I made it then stirred in leftover spaghetti from the night before and served with chicken tenders and a stir fry of veggies from the garden. Tarragon is one of my fave herbs, and adding it at the last minute really balances the flavor, will make often!
