Mixed Mushroom Pasta

Mixed Mushroom Pasta

I think I had told before that my favourite pasta would be something that is seafood based but after having this several weeks ago I think I am unsure which goes on the top of my list now.  Up until now I am dreaming about this dish as it was real good.  I love its earthy creamy flavours, it does not even contain meat but it well pleased me so if I will be a vegetarian this would be the dish for me, I can eat it every day without getting tired of it.

How about you do you love mushroom pasta? do you have a mushroom pasta recipe that you can share?

    OK: seafood first, but mushrooms second! Nice recipe I’ll follow :) ! Oops, methinks I just may use a tad less cream !!

    Love the combination of mushrooms! I would probably use fresh shitakes because for some reason, I’m not a fan of the dried version. The creaminess of this pasta really makes it a winner!

  9. My husband would LOVE this dish. He is a mushroom addict.

    Oh do I love mushroom pasta?! I would jump into this bowl if I could. I’m a fool for pasta of any kind really (especially seafood too), and mushrooms are one of my favorite ingredients. This looks soooooooo good Raymund!

  12. The pasta looks very inviting! I love the photograph.

  13. Mine would definitely have to be a mushroom pasta. Just like this one! Love it!

    I’m a super mushroom fanatic :) My grocery actually sends me this special coupons that always include one for mushrooms simply because I buy so many! Are kibbled shiitakes just dry shiitakes?
