  • Try adding cooked chicken, ham, bacon, or smoked salmon
  • For a creamier sauce adjust to 1 1/4 cups of vermouth and 3/4 cup whipping cream - this makes it even more delicious!
  • Other vegetables such as peas, snow peas etc is a great option
  • Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top when serving
  • Don't be afraid to add more sage, tastes amazing!
