You don’t have to serve this with the pasta – you could serve it over rice or even roasted potatoes. If you are keto – try it over some whipped or roasted cauliflower. This pasta recipe could also be used with a ton of other proteins – it would be delicious with a nice steak or pork chop. You could also use the balsamic sauce over a steak or pork chop as well.

One note of caution – you will need to use balsamic VINEGAR not VINEGARETTE. The vinaigrette or salad dressing versions are not going to mix into the sauce as well (they usually have additional oil as well as other seasoning and flavors). If you are concerned with the strength of the vinegar flavor, you could decrease the amount you add to the sauce or increase the amount of cream until you get the desired taste.
