Garlic Mushroom Penne

Hi there! It’s been a while hasn’t it? Feb and March were insanely busy for me, with dessert tables and cakes accidentally double booked because the winter made me lose my mind, but it was my equivalent to a full on marathon and I loved every minute of it!

I’ve slowly come back into my normal routine of cooking dinner and not having to taste different batches of buttercream or cake batter every night, and this pasta is so quick that I made it and ate it in less than 30 minutes.

Here’s what you’ll need: (1 large serving or 2 normal portions=p)

1/2 box penne pasta, boiled

1 clove garlic, minced

2 Tblspn olive oil

3 Tblspn chopped mushrooms

3/4 cup heavy cream(you may need to add more)

salt and black pepper to taste

1/4 tsp red chilli flakes

2 Tblspn parmesan

Start off by sautéing the garlic and mushrooms in the olive oil.

Once they start turning golden brown add the cream and seasoning.

Once everything comes to a boil add the pasta and parmesan.

Cook for a couple minutes, mixing occasionally, then serve with fresh parsley and more parmesan on top!

It’s that simple! Nothing else to it. You can add shrimp or grilled chicken and make it a hearty meal, or serve it as a side as well. Add some garlic bread and you’ll be set!
