How To Make A Creamy Mushroom Sauce For Pasta?

Have all your ingredients prepped because this pasta dish comes together in no time!

  1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until al dente. Reserve ½ cup of cooking water, drain, and reserve.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the butter and olive oil. Once melted, add the sliced mushrooms and cook them until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Add the minced garlic, chopped parsley, and red pepper flakes.
  4. Pour in the white wine and simmer until reduced by half.
  5. Mix in the chicken stock, heavy cream, and grated parmesan cheese. Cook until the sauce has thickened.
  6. Stir in the cooked fettuccine pasta, and cook until heated through. Serve hot with additional grated Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley on top.

What Is The Best White Wine For Cooking?

First and foremost, choose a wine you would drink. Second, choose a mild-tasting wine like Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc. More robust wines like Chardonnay or overly sweet dessert wines can interfere with the flavor of the food.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz fettuccine pasta
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ¾ cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until al dente. Reserve ½ cup of cooking water, drain and reserve.
  • While the pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the butter and olive oil. Once melted, add the sliced mushrooms and cook them until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Add the minced garlic, chopped parsley, and red pepper flakes.
  • Pour in the white wine and simmer until reduced by half.
  • Mix in the chicken stock, heavy cream, and grated parmesan cheese. Cook until the sauce has thickened.
  • Stir in the cooked fettuccine pasta, and cook until heated through. If you feel the sauce is too thick, add a little of the reserved pasta cooking water. Serve hot with additional grated Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley on top.

Notes

  1. Always cook pasta “al dente”, overcooked pasta turns out mushy and soft.
  2. If you feel the pasta sauce is too thick, add a little bit of the pasta cooking water to thin it out.
