I came across this recipe while scrolling on Instagram. It was originally in French, and although I used a translator, it missed out on quite a bit. Luckily, Chris is fluent in French and was able to provide me with the perfect translation. Original recipe link below.

  • And here it is ready! It's very simple and terribly too good with this creamy little sauce. You can accompany this dish with pasta, rice or why not small oven-roasted new potatoes.


The next time I make this (and there will definitely be a next time), I plan to experiment with using 200ml of stock and 100ml of cream. Cream adds a delicious taste, but unfortunately, it tends to upset my stomach. So, I'll be adjusting the proportions to reduce the amount of cream while still maintaining the desired flavors.
I paired the meal with Roti (in a hurry) from the recipe community. It is a great, super quick roti. I do prefer the one from Cookidoo, however if time is amiss, this is perfect
ROTI - RECIPE COMMUNITY - I also quartered the recipe for just Chris and I.

I also didn't have cherry tomatoes so I just used normal and chopped them up.
