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.
