These recipes use simple ingredients… Simple methods and you have a healthy and great meal ready. Though our dinner is mostly Indian, we do cook food from different cuisines for lunch. I have learnt a great deal from my spanish friend S and my portuguese friend M. Plus also some tibetan and russian food from some other friends

Now sharing with you all an Italian recipe. Just made this recipe from scratch without looking on internet or anywhere. Since now I have an understanding of how food is made and eaten in some countries and cultures, it was easy to make this recipe.

I have had some amazing Italian food here and so now know what goes into the makings of an Italian recipe. I knew a few Italian recipes before, but have learnt a great deal now. This Italian recipe is of creamy mushroom spinach sauce. I had earlier made a similar recipe to this one but instead of spinach and basil, I had added dill leaves.

This recipe is easy and quick. these kind of creamy recipes taste great with pasta, noodles, lasagna. Since we had made some rice we had the creamy mushroom spinach sauce with rice.

  3. Love your website though minor correction for this recipe – I am sure you meant 200ml and not 200 liters of cream 🙂 Also, I am not sure how much time you dedicate to the website but for all the email IDs collected, once a month/quarter, it will be wonderful to get a short mail from you, so that lest we forget to look you up, it reminds us of all that’s new on the site.
