Pasta is like my comfort food. Its been my savior in all kinds of moods. Whether I want to indulge or feel good or just don’t feel like eating usual stuff. I kind of grab whatever I have and end up making pasta. This Cheesy Mushroom Pasta is a delicious one pot meal, so less fuss and more fun.
But can I just say that this pasta recipe is up there; I mean I’ve already made this twice in a week. Its so tasty & easy to make. And you don’t end up with a ton of utensils and a full kitchen.
Here are some of the pasta recipes on the blog
I have cooked down onions and mushrooms really well and given the sauce a white sauce appeal without the flour. You can do the same thing with red sauce. Just cook down the tomato’s enough to create a loose sauce(btw learn here to make your own pasta sauce) and don’t forget to add lots of basil and cheese. I am sorry but this post doesn’t say healthy pasta so I guess I can avoid cheese. Plus it taste great & once in a while its OK to eat cheese. I have used processed cheese as I do not like the stringy ness of mozzarella in this recipe. If you’d like use any combination cheese for a different flavor while baking.
2 cups macaroni pasta
2 large onions sliced
200 gm mushrooms chopped
1/2 tsp garlic minced
250 ml(1 cup) milk
1/2 cup fresh cream/double cream
Salt & pepper as per taste
Processed cheese for baking
Take a heavy bottom pan. Heat some oil or butter and saute the garlic.
Add onions & mushrooms and cook down well. Add salt & pepper.
Now add pasta, milk, fresh cream and 1&1/2 cup water, cover and cook till pasta is al-dente(meaning almost cook) as we will cook this further in oven.
There may still be some sauce mix in the pasta which will further thicken up as it bakes. If you wish to consume it at this stage just reduce the sauce as per liking and Enjoy!!
Now preheat the oven at 200°C for 5 mins.
Transfer the pasta into a baking tray. You can also make layers if pasta & cheese if you’d like. Bake for 20 mins.
Serve hot with garlic bread. Enjoy!!
