White Wine and Garlic Mushroom Cream Sauce

"I got this delicious recipe from a chef at a restaurant where it was served with chicken. It also goes great with pasta or as a risotto sauce. It's easy to make but tastes very expensive!"

Ready In:




  • Fry the onion, garlic and mushrooms in a little olive oil. Do not fry them long enough to change their colour.
  • Add the wine and simmer for about 5 minutes until the wine has largely soaked in.
  • Crumble in the stock cube.
  • Add the cream.
  • Reduce the heat to slowly bring to the boil and leave to simmer and thicken- this should take 5-10 minutes.
  • If it does not thicken enough, add a little more chicken stock cube and simmer a bit longer.

    thought to bring heavy cream to a boil would break it


    Absolutely loooooved this recipe! I am a foodie and a new mom trying to loose weight. I substitute with light cream and when I have been really bad just low fat milk n some margarine n flour. Does the trick. Add any whole wheat pasta or even ravioli and you can have a yummy dinner portion under 550 calories including salad. <br/>Just couple things, if making the low fat version always add fresh herbs and maybe a few red pepper flakes for kicks and be careful the stock cube makes the recipe very very salty. Add about half cube or low sodium stock.

    I made this a few weeks ago and it was really good. I also cut up steamed asparagus and threw it into the mix. I will definitely be making this again. However, for those who tend to not use a lot of sauce on a plate of pasta, beware that I got about 5-6 servings out of this recipe and not 2.

    Great easy sauce. I made this to serve over grilled chicken and fettucine and served with a salad and garlic bread. Next time I will add some seasonings as we all added salt and pepper after it was made. It also took at least double the time to thicken but well worth the wait. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Stars Tag.

    Love this recipe I substituted shallots for regular onions, added some terragon, shiitake,porcini and portobello mushrooms and served this over pasta with grilled chicken.

    Love! Used shallot instead of onion, sauteed shallot, garlic and mushrooms in butter and olive oil. Added tarragon, rosemary, salt and pepper to the mushrooms. Makes way more than 2 servings and next time I will thicken it up a bit.

I am a primary school teacher living in Bristol, England. At the moment I teach Kindergarten, known here as Reception. I really love my job but it doesn't leave much time for hobbies! I enjoy cooking for friends and aim to try new recipes as often as possible! My signature dish has to be White Chocolate Blondies, as it is my most requested sweet treat, and I definitely have a sweet tooth! Update- 5-5-09: Somebody was very thoughtful and gave me the gift of a premium membership. I can honestly say it made me feel so good! If you're out there, THANK YOU so much! I can't quite believe the generosity... <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/holidaybadge.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket"X> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Banners/holidayprmr2.jpg"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <img src="http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/7505/mybanner4a394ee84d5f0.jpg" > <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/cc-banner-7-09.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
