This is a recipe for those with PKU...but if you have no clue what I'm talking about, see the previous post for the real recipe.
For those fellow PKU-ers out there, this makes a great sauce variety for pasta. I don't know about you, but I have eaten my fair share of low-protein pasta with tomato based sauce. If you need a little variety, try this. I estimated the PHE, but you probably want to measure it out yourself based on what you actually use. From what I could tell, it would come out to about 250mg PHE. Feel free to correct on comments if you know better...my food list is a bit out of date! Thanks, and enjoy.
2 servings of your favorite low pro pasta*
1 1/2 tablespoons margarine
100g white mushrooms, sliced
40g onions, diced
1/2 cup Marsala wine
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup heavy cream
1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
2 Melt the margarine over medium heat in a skillet. Saute the mushrooms, then set aside.
3. Add more margarine to the same skillet, if needed, and turn the heat down to medium-low. Add the onions, cover, and cook for 5 minutes.
4. Add the Marsala wine, thyme, parsley, and pepper. Stir until the liquid is reduced to 2-3 tablespoons.
5 Add the cream and stir constantly until reduced by half.
6. Pour sauce over strained pasta.
*For an even better taste, use Cambrooke Food's Low Protein Portabella Spinach Ravioli or Cheese Ravioli and/or top with Mozerella Shreds

After a teaser about blogging again, I followed with nothing. This was not because I had no thoughts to share- I have so many. It was because I was trying to decide what of my life to blog about - spiritual stuff like I did in the past blogs, new cooking adventures, home projects, wedding planning ideas, small town life or PKU. I realize none if these will be interesting to all people- but they are all part of my life. So expect some super short blogs with links to recipes, some long blogs of spiritual thoughts, and some random commentary about PKU and small town life. Enjoy or skip as you please. Oh and I just learned I can update from my phone app, so no excuses now.
