mushroom pasta recipe

on some days i just don’t want to cook anything indian, like dal, sabzi and roti. so i make dishes which are not that commonly made in my home. in fact as much as i love european and continental cuisine, there are no takers in the family for these… and pasta is a no no most of the times.

but this mushroom pasta recipe was an exception. even the husband who is not that fond of pasta loved this dish. however, slowly slowly we are moving from a family of people loving indian food to loving & relishing food from other cuisines and cultures.

to make this mushroom pasta, you don’t have to make the white sauce separately. the sauce is made during the cooking process…

making this recipe is a one pot or one pan meal. towards the end i topped with cheddar cheese and then baked for the cheese to melt. if you don’t have an oven you don’t need to do this last step. just top the mushroom pasta with some grated cheese and serve hot.

apart from mushrooms, i have also used yellow bell pepper. this is however, optional. you can also add some cooked corn or baby corn or steamed broccoli, carrots, cauliflower in the recipe.

i served this mushroom pasta with tomato soup and with some warm toasted brown bread. you can have this mushroom pasta without any accompaniment also.
