Sassy And Simple Parmesan Sauce

Sassy And Simple Parmesan Sauce
Tags: , , ,

Watching cooking shows can be detrimental to my health. Not only do I salivate at everything I see being made on the show, I want to cook it in my kitchen too. One day I was watching Martha Stewart make an apple/pear tart and as soon as the show was over, I was in the kitchen pulling the ingredients from the cupboards and cutting up the fruit.

Then there are days when just a simple sauce is needed to compliment a meal. Okay I confess I was watching a show from Italy where they were heating up a huge wheel of parmesan cheese, throwing pasta on the wheel of heated cheese, and making a sauce/meal out of it. The cheese was all gooey and clinging to the pasta. OMG I could hardly control myself. Here is a short video.

Since cooking shows could easily become an obsession (I do have that tendency) hubby was considering eliminating them from our cable TV package. I fought back with the all-important sports channels of his. Currently we still have the cooking channels and the sports channels – it was a “save-the-marriage” stalemate. 

This night, I had chicken slices that needed some pizzazz so I made a parmesan cheese sauce for the chicken. I added garlic green beans and parmesan potatoes to round out the meal. As we were eating dinner, little sauce mixed with the green beans and the potatoes – I’m not sure if it was on purpose or just wandering sauce. I’m not complaining it was delicious with the whole meal. 

A pat of butter and several sliced garlic cloves. 
Lightly sauté the garlic. Don’t overcook the garlic – it could get bitter. Here is a short video of  mixing the sauce.
