Great sauce, but to improve it use these tips. Cook the mushrooms first in a dry pan over medium heat until lightly golden (removes some water and helps concentrate the flavour). Then proceed with the recipe as shown. You can substitute shallots for the onions for a more robust flavour. I would suggest adding a tablespoon of fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary (1/2 that amount if the herbs are dried), and of course some flat-leaf parsley for colour and to garnish when plated. Adding 1/2 cup of cream is optional and very nice. Great with beef, lamb, pork or chicken. Very versatile and not difficult at all. Bon appetit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a really good all-purpose Marasala sauce recipe. I served it with meatloaf and it was excellent. I love the fact that this sauce isn't a nutritional time-bomb laden with butter. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Wonderful sauce. We braise boneless chicken thighs in it and serve with mushroom risotto. My wife also adds fresh sage and a sprinkle of parsley at the end for color. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Exactly what I was looking for. Rich, creamy and delicious!! I added a splash of heavy cream at the end, but otherwise prepared as written. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an amazing sauce and so easy! I had it done in only minutes. I followed this to the letter, except that I used Vidalia onions because that's what I had on hand originally and wow! This became my new go to recipe and the second time I made it I stuck to the sweet onions because it gave it such a great flavor. I also put it in the freezer and guess what? It reheat beautifully! It's great for a nice meal on busy days. Thank you so much for sharing this. It has gone right into my special recipe box. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These improvements sound excellent. I shall make this recipe using your suggestions. You'd really want a concentrated flavor in a mushroom that doesn't have much flavor to begin with. Perhaps adding some reconstituted dried porcini would be another option. item not reviewed by moderator and published
