DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
