Pasta with Mushroom Cream Sauce

I haven't posted a pasta dish for a long time, but don't worry I've still been eating it regularly– my favorite way, of course. I've also been eating a lot of mushrooms lately. Mainly just sauteed in butter with shallots –yum! I thought to add these indulgent flavors in a cream sauce over pasta. I used shiitake, but any mushrooms or a combination of mushrooms, would work. This was such an easy and quick sauce to make — just melt some butter, saute some minced shallots until softened, throw in the  chopped mushrooms, pour in the half and half or cream, season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with freshly grated parmesan cheese. By the time your pasta is cooked, the sauce is ready. Enjoy!!

Pasta with Mushroom Cream Sauce
2 tablespoon butter
1 shallot, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 8 oz package of shiitake mushrooms, or any variety, roughly chopped
1 cup half and half
salt 'n' peppa
1/4 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
Pasta of your choice, cooked al dente

1 Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat with shallots until softened. Add in minced garlic.
2 Throw in the mushrooms and cook until golden and soft. Pour in the cream, make sure the heat isn't too high, you don't want to boil the cream.
3 Season with salt and pepper to taste. Throw in the parsley and stir.
4 Pour over pasta of your choice and garnish with fresh parmesan cheese!

I am sending this pasta dish over to ascientistinthekitchen for presto pasta night!

Pasta + Mushrooms + Cream = HEAVEN. My fave italian restaurant has this handmade ravioli with a mushroom cream sauce and it is SINFUL. This looks like a good substitute when I'm craving it but don't want to go out.

Now here's a dish that has me drooling for pasta even before I've eaten breakfast.

Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.

Pasta is just so satisfying for day to day eating, and I love how easy it is to play around with pasta recipes. I love mushrooms, so this sounds great to me!

Sounds fantastic. For some reason mushroom cream sauce screams winter to me. I could see this warming me up on a cold night!

Chef Fresco said...
