Food on Fridays with Ann
Because the Belgian Wonder and I ate the pasta before I thought to take a photo, all I can offer you is the following recipe and an enthusiastic recommendation:Pasta with Mushrooms and Cream Sauce[source: Cooks.com]
- 12 oz. fresh mushrooms
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 shot vodka (I didn’t have vodka, so I used cooking sherry, but I plan to use white wine next time)
- Olive oil
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Small container light cream
- Grated Parmesan cheese
- Lots of fresh parsley, chopped fine
- Pasta (any kind desired)
Clean and slice mushrooms. Saute in olive oil and garlic, salt and pepper. Cook until tender. Add vodka and cook until liquid evaporates.Meanwhile cook any kind of pasta you like. When pasta is cooked, drain, return to pan and mix in mushrooms and light cream. Cook until cream thickens; add grated cheese and parsley. Serve with extra cheese.Fast, easy, and creamy.

I don’t have Vodka either, but I do have some white wine we use to marinade chicken. Your recipe sounds lovely and we would probably use curly noodles for the pasta. I wonder if Angel hair spaghetti would also be nice?
Just found your blog via Laugh with us. Thanks for hosting the link-up! I’ll enjoy the reading this weekend!
Yay! Love making a new acquaintance and will enjoy visiting your blog to see what you’ve cooked up!

This sounds delicious, Ann. I almost like the idea of the sherry better than the vodka because sherry adds such a lovely flavour to things with mushrooms in. Thank you for sharing another delicious recipe and for hosting.

I shared a post on the GAPS diet, which is a healing protocol for the gut – especially good for people with autism, but for many others as well.
Thanks for hosting

Delish. Even though I am trying to veer away from too many creamy dishes, but this one sounds like a worthwhile indulgence. I agree that the Sherry may be better than vodka for flavoring the shrooms… 🙂
