"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 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."

"Delicious! I didn't have fresh rosemary on hand so I used 1 tsp dried rosemary and it was great. Next time I'll try adding 1/3 cup chicken broth and 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream so that we can have a bit more sauce. Even my kids liked it!"
