Recipe

Toss this creamy sauce with hot cooked pasta, or drizzle it over steamed broccoli or roasted Brussels sprouts.

Yield: Makes 1½ cups (6 servings)

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Onion-Garlic Puree
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1. Heat the Onion-Garlic Puree in a small saucepan over medium heat.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the milk into the cornstarch.

3. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the onion-garlic puree. Raise the heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil, whisking constantly. Then reduce the heat to low and continue to cook the sauce until it has thickened, about 1 minute.

4. Add the cheese and the nutmeg to the sauce and whisk until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve, or store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

    Mahalo for posting this recipe. I only had a few ingredients in my kitchen and was able to pull this off with minor adjustments. I substituted 1 % milk (although I'm sure whole milk would taste better), and I used baking powder instead of cornstarch (I had no idea if it would work. All I can say is, it didn't not work. Haha).

    All and all, everyone (hubby and keiki (6 & 4) seemed to really like it!

    We poured it over whole wheat spaghetti noodles and leftover rotisserie chicken. Pretty okay dinner.

    Aloha!
