  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 - 3 cups light cream
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese grated


  • Over medium heat, place a large skillet and add butter.
  • Once butter is melted and sizzling, add the flour, and whisk well to combine while cooking. Let it cook for about 1 minute while stirring.
  • Next, add slowly the light cream and continue to stir. Make sure not to pour the cream all at once, instead do it slowly.
  • Then, add garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, dried herbs, salt, and pepper.
