Mushroom Pasta Recipe - Creamy Macaroni Pasta Recipes

Mushroom Pasta Recipe
I wanted to try a pasta recipe with mushrooms for a long time...say ever since I started cooking pasta at home. Finally gave a try few weeks back and should say mushroom with pasta is such a delicious combination, sure a match made in heaven! I referred this recipe from Good Food magazine and was titled 'pasta in mushroom garlic sauce'.

This is not a perfect white sauce recipe, its just my attempt to create a low fat version of white sauce....I loved the mild sauce coating on the pasta with the crunch from mushroom and capsicum....it was light on my tummy......happy me :) This pasta won hands down as it was liked by all, okay I admit lil one excluded :) as she doesn't like pasta, am happy about it and don't force her for that but have to find ways to include mushroom in other forms that she would love to eat....Now lets get onto the recipe.

Mushroom Pasta Recipe

My Notes:

  • Adding capsicum is optional , you can replace it any other veggies of your choice.
  • Serve immediately as it the sauce may get dry soon.If it gets dry, you can add little more milk, heat it up and then serve.
  • You can use any pasta variety for this recipe, I had macaroni so used it.
  • You can also use color capsicum for a more colorful looking pasta.
  • Mushroom cooks faster so just saute for 2-3mins until color changes dont make it too soft, it should be crunchy enough to bite.
  • Add more cheese as preferred especially if its for kids be generous. :)

  7. Hi Sharmi,
    I tried the pasta and it came out well. But Iused Cheddar cheese. I am not sure if that is the cheese to be used. Can you suggest which cheese would be best
