Creamy Garlic Herb Mushroom Spaghetti

There’s always something about pasta that’s quite irresistible–simple, delicious, & satisfying.  Fortunately, you don’t really need to be a pro to be able to make a great pasta dish. Then you pick up a bottle of wine, call some friends over, and you have yourself a nice, cozy dinner filled with laughter and great conversations.
Inset is mushroom spaghetti with a creamy garlic herb sauce (you can almost taste how delish this meal is just by reading that). Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces pasta (spaghetti, linguine, etc.)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, divided
  • 16 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon herbes de provence
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • additional ¼ cup water, broth, milk or cream (optional)
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley (more to taste)

Preparation

Step 1

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Set aside and toss with a little oil to prevent sticking.


Step 2

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium high heat. Add one clove of the garlic and saute for a minute until fragrant. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 5-10 minutes, until golden brown and softened. Set aside.


Step 3

Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to the pan and melt again over medium high heat. Add the garlic and saute for a minute until fragrant. Add the flour and herbes de provence.  Stir fry for a minute to cook out the flour taste.


Step 4

Add the milk slowly, whisking to incorporate. Let the mixture simmer until thickened. Season with salt and pepper.


Step 5

Toss the sauce, pasta, and mushrooms together. Add the olive oil and water as needed to keep the sauce from getting too thick. Stir in the parsley just before serving.
