Here is a wine sauce that I make when time is short. It is great on pasta with some cooked shrimp over the top. Looks like it took alot of time put it's just minutes.

Einar, another great recipe. I would add just a sprinkle of parmesan cheese to top it off. Other than that... so easy and good!

It seemed a little bland, and didn't particularly enhance the meal.

A friend recommended I try this. I don't know why there was any comment less than five stars! This was the best white wine sauce I've ever made.
