Bourbon Isn't Just For Cocktails And Desserts
These days bourbon seems to be reserved for cocktails or gooey desserts, but adding it to a pasta sauce makes for an unforgettable dinner too.
Every so often when I go out to eat, I'll see several different entreé options that sound intriguing. Unfortunately since I only have enough room to eat one entreé (plus dessert), I'm forced to choose just one of the three or four options I found interesting. This happened recently while I was on vacation. There was a fried chicken plate, a duck dish and a fettuccini and meatballs in a bourbon cream sauce. Well, if I'm picking between fried chicken and pasta, the chicken's going to win every time. But the fettuccini sounded so interesting that I was determined to recreate the recipe in my own kitchen. I was amazed at how easy it was to make the sauce. Unlike a thick tomato sauce which takes a good hour or so to make, this creamy bourbon sauce only took about 20 minutes. Adding some frozen meatballs finished off the dish perfectly.
