Mushroom Cream (Ragu) Sauce

I made Home Made Gnocchi for Christmas Eve and thought this sauce would go great with it. Here is the recipe for the Gnocchi : Gnocchi Recipe 

I love Cream Sauce and  I love mushrooms so I searched for the perfect recipe to go with the Gnocchi.  The below recipe is adapted from a great cooking blog called the Taste of Sweet.

This Mushroom Cream (Ragu) Sauce would also go great over Linguine or even chicken cutlets.

Here is what you'll need:

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups chopped mushrooms ( is used mini baby portobello's and regular mushrooms)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced 
  • 1 tbsp chopped sage leaves
  • 2 chopped shallots
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
Heat the oil in a fry pan.  Add the mushrooms and without stirring allow the mushrooms to caramelize in the oil for about 8 minutes. 

Add salt and pepper and stir for another minute. 

Now add the sage and shallots and stir again. 

 Next add the wine and reduce by half, this should take a few minutes.  
Once reduced halfway add the cream and let simmer for a few minutes.

Now you have a beautiful mushroom cream sauce. 

Cut up some fresh Parmesan Cheese and Romano Cheese and place over the sauce and let is get soft!  Sprinkle some fresh parsley and fresh ground pepper as well.

Here is the sauce over home made Gnocchi!
