Creamy Mushroom Pasta

Posted By Kerri

Mushroom pasta is one of those things I’ve attempted a couple of times with no success and I’d pretty much given up on it. This recipe posted by Rachel of What Rachel Ate Today sounded promising though and I bookmarked it to try later on. I didn’t have to wait too long; we bought mushrooms for Saturday’s pie and didn’t end up using them so, keen to make sure they didn’t go to waste, I picked up some cream on the way home and started cooking.

We followed the recipe almost exactly: we used red onion instead of white as we seem to have loads of them, didn’t add lemon and completely forgot about the walnuts until we were half way through eating.

It was a resounding success, the mushrooms were bursting with flavour and the earthiness perfectly complimented the sweet, red onion. It was a perfect autumnal dish and I’m really glad to have at last found a good mushroom pasta recipe – thanks Rachel 🙂
