Creamy & Cheesy Rotini with Mushrooms

by Butter & Sugar

Mushrooms and onions sauteed until golden in a creamy, stringy, cheesy mozzarella sauce,
sitting on top of rotini pasta! A quick and easy recipe.

Recipe:

1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup sliced button mushrooms
1/3 medium white onion, roughly diced
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup whole milk
1/2 chicken (or bouillon) cube (I use Knorr, but any will do)
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese

Rotini pasta

1. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water. Follow packet directions.
Cook for 8 min. Then drain. Set aside.

(While pasta is cooking start the sauce)

2. In a large frying pan heat olive oil on medium/high heat add the mushrooms and onions,
sautee until golden brown, takes about 10 minutes.
Add the cream, milk and chicken cube. Turn down the heat to medium/low.
Once the chicken stock is disolved add the grated mozzarella.
Add S + P.

3. Plate the pasta and add the sauce on top.

(Serves two..or one large bowl! Double the sauce recipe for more.)
