Pasta Marco Polo??? Red wine/Orange juice based sauce

crashd007 | Feb 18, 201507:41 AM    

Back in the early nineties I worked at a Tennis club in Toronto for a year. The chef used to make a pasta sauce with a base of red wine and orange juice that he called Pasta Marco Polo. I thought he had said he learned to make it at George Brown. I was wondering if maybe there was someone here that might remember it.

I know for sure it had:

Red wine
Orange juice
"Mushroom sauce" (Not sure if he meant mushroom soy, I just remember this ingredient because I couldn't find it
Corn Starch to thicken

I think it had:

Ginger
Garlic
Soy sauce

He would usually serve it with fettuccine and garnish with poppy seeds and mandarin wedges.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have been searching for this recipe for so long. All my efforts to duplicate it have never lived up to my expectations.
