* 70g white wine
* 100g whipping cream
* 20g chopped coriander

Sweat for about three minutes.

Add the white wine and reduce by three-quarters then add the whipping cream and boil for about three minutes.

Add the chopped coriander and the cooked linguine pasta. Cook for a further two to three minutess until hot.
