Ready In:




  • In a small sauce pan melt 1 tbsp butter.
  • Add minced onion, garlic and mushrooms.
  • Cook until nice and soft.
  • Add 1/2 cup white wine and simmer on low until it reduces by 3/4.
  • In a sauce pot or pan melt 2 1/2 tbsp butter.
  • Stir in the flour creating a roux.
  • With a whisk, mix in the milk a little at a time to avoid lumps--whisk hard and lots.
  • When the mixture is smooth, pour in the cream, mix in the basil pesto, salt, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce and mushroom onion garlic wine mixture.
  • Mix well--pepper to taste
  • Stir in the parmesan cheese, blending well; set aside.
  • This sauce can be made hours ahead of time, simply reheat on your cook top on low or microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Drizzle over your favorite meal. I have shown this sauce served over stir-fried vegetables and shrimp on pasta.

Hi and thank you for visiting my about me page... I have 2 very handsome sons that are my pride and joy. My partner is the man i was to marry when i was 18 years old - unfortunately we got cold feet and i moved away - we have reunited after searching for each other for 25 years and are making our home in Calgary - we are eventually going to make it to the altar. Our rescue dog Nikki and my son's Cat Saichel are our fur babies. I was the lucky recipient of a premium membership donated by a very generous chef here at Zaar and to show my appreciation i have tried to continue to fulfill my responsibilities to ensure premimum membership continues. However, I have run into a little snag but am working on it. I am looking forward to the day when I can reciprocate and offer someone else the joy of premium. Pet peeves in life are inconsiderate & ignorant people & slow drivers. Life goes by fast - why not drive the same speed......
