I think it was an Olive Garden commercial that made me think of this. Plan was to make a creamy asiago sauce for the noodles, pan sear some chicken and cut it up into strips, then top with a intense garlic, tomato, basil, and cream sauce.
Nailed the asiago sauce. A bit of garlic and lots of cheese. It got pretty thick with the cheese so I thinned it out with some milk and added a bit of black pepper. Usually I try to do so much to this type of sauce and it gets muddled, this was perfect.
The red sauce was packed with onions, garlic, Italian herbs, and basil. It was just to add some more flavor. It was quite delicious.
the making of the red sauce
I did not thicken the red sauce with roux, the tomato did the trick with the cream and reduced it down.
