Tips for Best Results

  • If you use a different type of pasta, the cooking time may need to be adjusted.

  • Use fresh mushrooms for the best texture and taste.

Variations

Serving suggestions

Pair this recipe with a fresh broccoli cranberry salad and some crusty garlic bread to balance the richness of the dish.

Steamed vegetables like broccoli or asparagus also make a great side, adding a healthy and colorful touch to your meal.

Storage

Any leftovers can be kept for up to three days in the refrigerator in an airtight container. To preserve the creamy quality, reheat gently at 50% power in the microwave or on the stovetop while adding a splash of water or broth.
