Pasta In Creamy Mushroom Sauce

This creamy pasta is a treat for mushroom lovers. The process of making the mushroom sauce is very simple and yet it gives a very nice flavor to the dish. When we were moving to Sydney from India, we had a stopover and flight change at Singapore Airport.  My son was hungry and we ordered Pasta in a creamy mushroom sauce for him. He enjoyed and loved it. So then making the mushroom sauce was on my list. I had made mushroom sauce twice earlier and it came out very well. So now thought of sharing with you the process.

I have used white mushrooms for making the sauce. Cheese, butter, and milk give a nice creamy texture and Onion and garlic enhance the flavor of the sauce.

Mushroom is widely used in many dishes. Though it is not meat, Mushroom is packed with a meaty flavor. It is low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol free, gluten free and low in sodium. It provides similar benefits as from vegetables, meat, beans, and grains.

The mushroom sauce is very easy and quick to make. Use fresh mushrooms for this recipe. I have used cheddar cheese slice while making the sauce,  you can also use grated processed or mozzarella cheese instead. I have blended the sauce to give it a smooth texture. However, you can skip the process of blending and use the sauce which has small chunks of cooked mushroom, if you do not want a smooth sauce.

Many kids and also my son does not like to eat mushroom in any dish. I find that making the mushroom sauce and incorporating it in the pasta is a good way to feed the kids. This way they will enjoy the taste of the dish and also will be benefited with the nutrition from mushrooms.

So friends enjoy this step by step video of making the pasta in a creamy mushroom sauce. Do make it for your family and please do share your views and comments with me.
