Pasta in a Mushroom Cream Sauce

June 8, 2014

http://favorcustomgifts.com/b0hed9czm/nick-truy-kich-mien-p.php Don’t you love mushrooms? I love them. I love their earthiness, their squishy texture, the fact that they marry so beautifully with garlic and butter. You can make them a starter, top a bruschetta with them, use them in pastas, warm salads, with umpteen herbs – the options are endless.

source As a child, we used to get tinned button mushrooms that I would happily use to make mushroom chillies for my mum. But, now, I have discovered so many different uses for them. Here’s one that I tried when fellow foodies Elson from The Tummy Tale and Renita from Culinary Zeal came home for a potluck.

http://lerevemakeup.com/estimates/ It was so much fun. We each had our own ingredients and Elson made these brilliant Chicken Cheese Rolls – they were soft, oozy with cheese and spicy at the right point! And Renita made a wonderful Mango and Mint Pavlova – a perfect finish to the meal. They will soon post their recipes on their respective blogs! Check it out.

    What did you mean by a well seasoned pot of water?

    By well seasoned I mean a pot of water that has been salted well.
