Pasta and Creamy Mushrooms

This was one of the first recipes I tried when we embarked on our cooking journey and it’s a recipe we continue to go back to time and time again.  We love the flavor of the mushrooms and the creaminess of the pasta!

We’ve tried it with garlic sauteed chicken too and that’s also a hit!
