Tasted delicious I scaled back for one serve and used linguine as that is what I had but I erred and used way to much cream as I wrote the wrong amount down for one serve and it is the first time I have taken a roux beyond blonde but when I added the cream it mix split and looked like big curdled lumps but adding milk and whisking bought it back together and proceeded as per recipe for a delicious dinner which I thoroughly enjoyed especially the touch of tabasco which added a zing which I love. Thank you natsgarden123 made for What's On The Menu tag game at FF&F.
