Broccoli and Pine Nuts in a Brown Butter Sherry Sauce: Recipe Notes
• You could substitute white wine for the sherry - or just leave it out. You'll still get a rich, delicious sauce.• I tossed the finished dish with a little pasta - there was plenty of brown butter to coat the pasta. • When you brown butter, you'll get a small amount of deposits on the skillet. Some people like to strain their butter, but I enjoy these "toasted butter bits" and the flavor they add.
