    I can’t resist lightening up our meals once it warms up outside. While pasta is a staple in our house, my sauces change seasonally. This simple white wine sauce is a favorite base for shrimp, scallops, chicken, mushrooms, veggies and other summer favorites. It’s also fast and easy to prepare, making it a great weeknight dinner. For the girls, this is an upgrade from the coveted buttered noodles. It’s full of flavor, but light on calories so I can get my pasta fix without the guilt.

    You can watch the video above to see how quick and easy my white wine sauce is to make. As much as I enjoy cooking, I prefer to spend my time soaking up a little sunshine and fresh air while watching the girls play than making dinner.
     
    If you don’t drink white wine and therefore don’t want to purchase a bottle to make this dish, I have found that white cooking wine {found in the salad dressing/vinegar area of your grocery store} works equally as well. However, I like to give myself an excuse to have a glass or two, so I almost always use a Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.
