Quick and Easy Cream Sauce

15 mins (prep 15)
6 ingredients
4 servings
The title says it all. This is a base sauce that you can elaborate on in many different ways. You could add tomatoes, onions, prosciutto, etc. This time around I had some leftover pasta, and I wanted something fast. If you have time, it’s nice to add chicken or shrimp. I have made this with shrimp before, and it was delicious. I will include that recipe after the sauce recipe.
