Olive Garden

Hi, I have spent 5 hours cooking today! I am taking a break now then probably cleaning for another two. Anyhow I wanted to share this.

Did you guys know that Olive Garden's website has some of there long standing recipes listed?
Well this is their recipe for the Chicken Milanese sauce. It is very popular with my guy even though theres spinach in it!
I love this sauce, a couple tweeks I do though: all roasted garlic, no tomatoes (he wouldn't go for that), and twice the spinach. Try it it's delicious.


½ cup butter, unsalted

4 garlic cloves, minced (or 1 Tbsp)

1 cup white wine

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

¼ tsp black pepper, to taste

½ tsp salt

8 cherry tomatoes, halved

¼ cup spinach, chopped

8 roasted garlic cloves, minced (or 4 Tbsp)

MELT butter in sauce pan over medium heat.

ADD minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add flour and stir well until well-blended.

ADD white wine, chicken broth, heavy cream and cheese. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until mixture starts to thicken.

ADD roasted garlic, pepper and salt. Stir until well blended.

ADD tomatoes and spinach to sauce and allow to simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
