    kiwidutch's Note:

    This sauce must cook slowly for several hours to develop its full flavor. The recipe makes a lot of sauce, but it is just as easy to make a lot as a little, and you can freeze any extra successfully.

      This was fantastic. I followed the recipe almost exactly except I used red wine instead of white (since that is what I had on hand), used a little chicken stock (1 cup) and powdered nutmeg instead of fresh. I loved tasting it throughout and seeing how the flavour changed and developed. I froze most of this, as I wanted some quick sauces for the work/school week. Thanks for the recipe!

      Loved it! I was fascinated by this recipe, having never made a red sauce with milk, white wine or nutmeg. The mire poix gave the sauce a lovely depth and the prosciutto adds even more flavor. I got concerned when the milk curdled, likely due to the wine, but once the tomatoes were added you couldn't tell. This is a true gourmet dish in my book, thanks kiwidutch!

      Well, besides the fact that I didn't have any white wine(had to use red) this was so flavourful. I had company for supper, and it was a hit. I had to give my friend a doggy bag! This was the only recipe I had seen with proscuitto in it. We weren't disappointed. Thanks Mean Chef, I will make this recipe again.
