This recipe was amazing! Made it for dinner tonight and it did not disappoint. So creamy, warm and tasty. It really hit the spot! I didn’t have parm on hand so I used gruyère which was perfect. I will definitely be making this again!

This mushroom pasta was not only delicious but was fast, easy and a quick clean up job since it’s a one pot meal. I can’t eat a ton of dairy so the small amount of half and half was appealing when choosing this recipe and didn’t cause me any trouble. I added broccoli which was a perfect addition in my opinion. I will be adding this recipe to our rotation.
