  • Add the onion and cook until translucent 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the Garlic and cook for about 1 minute.

  • Add the chicken stock and cook until reduced by at least half.
  • Add the heavy cream and cook until the sauce is thick and creamy.
  • Add the basil and cook for no more than 1 minute.
  • If the sauce has become too thick add about 1/4 cup of the pasta water. Add the cooked pasta and cook for about 2 minutes mixing frequently until all the sauce has been absorbed by the pasta. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve topped with some grated Parmesan cheese (optional). enjoy.
