Creamy Mushroom Pasta

Creamy Mushroom Pasta

Creamy mushroom pasta will have very bold flavor. As the name indicates it will be so creamy and mushrooms will be juicy and is very easy to prepare. For this recipe no need to cook mushroom separately, infuse them into the sauce. Mushroom lovers will love this recipe as we can taste mushroom in each and every bite as we cook the mushroom along with the sauce. We can toss any perfectly cooked pasta like penny or macaroni in this sauce. I am making this recipe with Spaghetti which is a long, thin, cylindrical pasta of Italian origin.
