Reducing whipping cream with flavourful ingredients is a wonderfully simple way to make an unbeatable sauce. The fresh tastes of sage and sundried tomatoes brighten this sauce up to make a summery compliment for pasta, grilled chicken or pork.
- Prep: 10 min
- Cooking: 10 min - 15 min
- 1 cup (250 mL) 35 % cream
- 1/3 cup (80 mL) finely chopped sundried tomatoes
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh sage
- 1/3 cup (80 mL) shredded Asiago cheese
- A pinch of cayenne pepper
- A pinch of ground nutmeg
- Salt and pepper to taste
Combine cream, sundried tomatoes and sage in a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until reduced to a sauce-like consistency, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for an additional 10 minutes to further soften the sun dried tomatoes.
Return to medium heat until hot; remove from heat and stir in cheese. Season with cayenne, nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste.
