Delicious on its own, but can add around 100ml fresh cream once cooked and added to Thermoserver or dish. Serve with pasta of choice and optional chicken (or add 400g raw diced chicken breast at step 2 like)
I freeze the sauce into large ice cube trays. I sometimes add to other recipes for extra flavour.
