We've had such a great summer and I'm still in disbelief that it's coming to an end. Schools around here start TOMORROW....what?! Ahh i just can't believe it. Where in the world did the whole summer go?
Our summer has been packed with all the things.... we visited friends in Wisconsin, checked out the beach in Destin, Florida, visited my brother-in-law in Mississippi before his deployment and made numerous trips to see family. It's been a lot of driving and flying and I've loved every minute of it!
And McKinley has been a TROOPER! She's been great little traveler and I'm SO thankful for that. Here are a few photos from our summer....makes me smile thinking back on all the fun we had!
All that time with family and friends...that's what summer's all about, right?! I love summer. But, I'm not gonna lie, I'm looking forward to sweater weather, booties, football, and pumpkin everything... I know, I know, #basic.
With fall comes busy nights (especially if you have school age kids, I'm sure!) and that calls for easy meals. I created this recipe one night when I was in a hurry. And then I made it the next night too, because it was just SO GOOD.
So, time to finally share my Creamy Mushroom Pasta with you! It's quick to make, has soooo much flavor, and has just one pan to clean. (AMEN!) I hope you love it as much as we do!!!
Can I use a different pasta shape?
Using a different pasta shape (shells, rotini, penne, etc) will not change the flavor. However, it may take more or less time to cook, depending on the thickness of the shape. I'd recommend checking the doneness of the pasta a every couple minutes, especially once most of the liquid has been soaked up.
Can I make Creamy Mushroom Pasta gluten and/or dairy free?
Absolutely! Several brands make delicious gluten free pastas and they'd work great in this recipe. If you have an allergy to dairy, it's pretty easy to make this recipe dairy free too! Simply use soy milk instead of regular milk and either skip the Parmesan or use a dairy free replacement. (Honestly, there's plenty of flavor even before the Parmesan is added!)
How should I store leftovers?
If you're lucky enough to have leftovers, you'll be antsy for lunch to roll around the next day so you can heat this up! As with any hot meal, I recommend cooling it down as quickly as possible. Scoop the leftovers into a shallow Tupperware and let cool on the counter for 15 minutes. Then, put it in the fridge and cover once it's cool.

I absolutely love this recipe! I doubled the recipe, used all chicken broth since I didn’t have wine, and used half and half in place of the milk. Threw in extra mushrooms and spinach since I wanted to use them up. Even with the changes, it still came out great. We had this as a side dish with grilled ribeyes. Cannot wait to make it again, everyone loved it. Easy cleanup and leftovers heat up well. Thank you!
Ahhh I'm so happy to hear that, Carol!! And it sounds like the perfect side dish for grilled ribeyes....makes me hungry just thinking about that! 🙂 Thank you for the feedback - it's always appreciated! -Kelsey
