Savoury Amaretto Cream Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by StylinDog

A lovely sauce for pasta and chicken (or whatever you may like). Not for dieters, but worth every calorie! I love amaretto and looked high and low for a sauce recipe. I couldn't find any on Zaar that fit the bill so this one was created based on the few that I found from other online sources. It does not have an overwhelmingly amaretto flavour, but you will detect a hint of sweetness. Smells divine! Note: Cook time is approximate and your yield may vary, depending on how much you let it reduce after each addition.

Great recipe. Made it for filet mignon and substituted beef stock for the chicken and added mushrooms when i sauted the onions and garlic. Really great taste and super easy with just a few ingredients.
