This is quite tasty. Could even make without Capers if you don't have them in your fridge. BUT, be sure to pull the sauce off the heat for a few minutes to cool before adding lemon juice. My sauce curdled because I added the lemon juice when it was still too hot. Didn't ruin it, but wasn't smoothy & pretty sauce!

I tried this recipe tonight. I also used FF Half & Half. It was good, but the sauce never thickened in the least little bit. I don't know if it was because I didn't use heavy cream or not. Still a good recipe.

The cook time on this says 15 minutes, but after 40 minutes on medium heat the sauce had barely reduced. I thought perhaps a little more heat was needed, but at '7' out of '10' on my stove it curdled almost immediately. This sauce may or may not be good when prepared correctly, but the instructions given are clearly not correct.
