Meal of the Moment: White Wine Sauce Pasta

What do you do with an almost empty bottle of mediocre wine if you're the type of person who cringes over things put to waste? It waited in my fridge for a few of days until I found a solution. You all know I go crazy over wasted things...can't stand it!

This is another MEAL OF THE MOMENT post where I give ideas on what to do with leftover food so it doesn't go to waste. (Click here for more Meal of the Moment posts) Today's idea is using leftover white wine.
Dinner paired with toasted baguettes and pellegrino water...
fall candles in mis-matched flea market jars
for an early autumn ambiance.

After staring with annoyance at it on the fridge shelf I decided to make a white wine sauce with it for an Italian pasta dinner. I simply made a basic white sauce using whipping cream. I embellished it with 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup white wine, garlic, onion salt, crushed pepper, and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. It smelled diVINE! I spooned it over angel hair pasta al dente and topped it with Italian herb crusted chicken.

So super simple and yum-o .

Change up your napkins
by using monogrammed tea towels
for a big, bold, and different
dinner table statement.

Presto, YO.

Now go break a sweat baby
because this is not low cal.

Yum. This sounds scrumptious. Love the tea towel idea. That would be great for messy meals!

Thanks for the tip!
