This is a recipe that I made up on my own using the cooking skills and knowledge I have. I decided to make a creamy sauce with white wine and instead of using sour cream or regular cream, I used Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is low in fat and calories and has a high protein level. I attempted to make this last week and it was a semi-fail. I had fat-free yogurt at home and when I added it to the pan it began to separate. I forgot that when you cook using dairy that you must have some fat in it or it will separate when it is heated. I call it a semi-fail because although the consistency of the sauce was off the flavor was delicious.
My second attempt was last night. This time I bought 2% Greek yogurt and I added a little bit of butter to the pan when I sautéed the onions and garlic. I was happy with the result; it tasted the same but more importantly the sauce was creamy.
