"This was tasty but I would not go out and buy whipping cream just to make it. I used half & half and it worked just fine. I also used dry rosemary."

"I love that this is so easy to make. The sauce has a very nice taste to it. I used dried rosemary instead of fresh."

"I doubled the recipe for the sauce, probably didn't need to. Served it over squash ravioli.

YUMM! It's a keeper!"

"This was an amazingly great recipe. It was super easy with minimal prep and just a few ingredients. I think I might try sauteed sliced baby portobella mushrooms next time for the fun of it. Really a great recipe."
