When all was together (along with a bay leaf, a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary, & some pepper) I put it to simmer for awhile. Smelled really good. But looking at the pot, I thought it would be nice to have the sauce creamier. But...no cream. I dug around in the cupboard and found an old can of condensed cream of chicken soup. (Did I look at the date on the can first? No. Was this an error? Yes.) Mixed it with a little water--still kind of textured, but I thought it would go on and blend. Not...exactly. Not horrible, but the little flecks of what I assume were casein cut the attractiveness a bit.
Flavor, though, was excellent, when I added more salt & pepper.
