So I made this new pasta sauce...

My girlfriend and I were assigned to make the pasta and sauce for a group date this Friday. The main dish is a citrus-flavored chicken, so we figured it'd be awesome if the pasta went good with the chicken.

So I was testing it out and, by golly, this is my new favorite pasta sauce (that's tough, as I love meat sauce). I used my white sauce recipe that I use all the time, but substituted chicken broth for half of the milk, and added lemon/lime zest and juice.

Here's the recipe.

3 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp flour
1 cup milk
1 cup chicken broth
1 small lemon's worth of lemon zest
1 small lime's worth of lime zest
1 tbsp lemon juice
Sugar to taste

Melt butter, stir in flour to make a paste. Add milk and chicken broth, heat on medium-high, stirring occasionally. Once it's consistent, remove from heat, add the fruit stuff, and stir. Add sugar to taste.

So, um...yeah. It's awesome. I don't especially love the tartness, but a tablespoon or so of sugar fixed that problem.

Very unusual sauce. How much pasta did you use for this recipe? How many servings?

Hi all! I'd suggest you to try the Rag recipe, using chicken instead of beef. In this case you'll make all the same preparation substituting chicken!
I think to have on old post on my blog about it, just have a look!
Greetings from Italy, Simona!
