Dinner, Pasta

Creamy Mushroom Pasta

A yummy weeknight dinner that doesn’t disappoint! This is how I would decribe this recipe. I found this on on the site Salt and Lavendar. This is a new site that we follow and this recipe jumped out to my hubby. In my opinion it is like a lighter version of alfredo.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 7 ounces mushrooms sliced thin
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 2 dashes Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley chopped, to taste
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese to taste (optional)

Instructions

  • Boil a large, salted pot of water for the pasta and cook it al dente according to package directions. 
  • Meanwhile, add the butter and oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and garlic to the pan and sauté for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the mushrooms release most of their water and it’s cooked off. Take the mushrooms out of the pan and set aside.
  • Add the wine, Italian seasoning, lemon juice, flour, and Dijon mustard to the pan. Stir until it becomes a smooth paste.  Stir in the cream and let it simmer for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms back into the pan. Reduce the heat and cook for a few more minutes until the sauce has thickened up a bit. Season sauce with salt & pepper as needed.
  • Drain the pasta and toss it with the sauce along with the parsley and parmesan if using.
