It Only Takes 3 Ingredients To Make A Delectable White Wine Pasta Sauce
By S. Ferrari
Pasta sauces don't always have to be creamy and rich, and there's a quick and simple three-ingredient pasta sauce, which only requires white wine, butter, and parmesan cheese.
To get the most out of this simple dish, it's best to use unsalted butter, a cheese wedge you can shred yourself, and a dry, acidic white wine like Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc.
Use roughly equal parts white wine to shredded cheese and about a ¼ of that amount in butter. The trick here is all about emulsifying through the combination of these ingredients.
This creates that creamy quality and helps the sauce adhere to your noodles without a single drop of cream. Once the wine is reduced to about half, toss in the other ingredients.
Finally, add the pasta, and you'll be in perfect shape for a memorable, repeatable meal that you can easily customize with herbs, spices, and other cheeses.
