Mouth Watering White Sauce

One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year is to get creative with vegetables. This recipe incorporates a number of vegetables and even the pickiest of eaters will love this. In the words of my guy, ‘This is the best sauce you’ve made yet.’


Mouth Watering White Sauce

½ c mushrooms, chopped
½ c onion, chopped
1 c light cream
¼ c butter (I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter)
1 clove garlic
4 oz gorgonzola cheese
4 oz cream cheese
¼ c red pepper, chopped
¼ c parsley
3 c fresh spinach
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 lb of scallops or the meat of your choice (I used scallops since that is what I had in my fridge)

In a large non-stick skillet, start to sauté the mushrooms and onions. After the mushrooms and onions start to soften, add the cream and butter. Let cream and butter simmer for 5 minutes. Add garlic, gorgonzola, cream cheese, red pepper, parsley, spinach (this would be the time to add the scallops or the pre-cooked meat). Continue to simmer for 3-5 minutes until all the cheese has melted.

Serve the sauce over pasta or you can add this sauce on top of a steak. If you like the taste of onions sprinkle green onions on top of your dish before serving.
