One Pot Creamy Garlic Pasta with Mushrooms

One Pot Creamy Garlic Pasta with Mushrooms

It's late afternoon on a Tuesday, and you don't have dinner planned yet. 

Don't fret my friend, I've got you covered. This One Pot Creamy Garlic Pasta with Mushrooms is seriously easy and oh so yummy. You'll need a handful of ingredients, half of which you probably already have in your pantry, and one heavy bottom pot. In 20 minutes you'll have made a dinner that tastes like you've slaved away for hours. One thing to note is that this creamy pasta is on the rich-side, so I suggest you balance it out with a fresh veggie salad. And that's it you guys. 

Don't have heavy cream? Regular milk and a teaspoon more parmesan will do the trick. 

No mushrooms? Try frozen peas or fresh cut broccoli, or whatever else you may have lurking in your veggie box. 

Don't have regular spaghetti? Any pasta will do! 

No fresh parsley? Mix in a sprinkle of dried Italian seasonings at the end. 

If you can't tell, this one is super customizable. So get cooking, loves!

If you have time, I recommend using roasted garlic in place of the fresh garlic below. Recipe in Bravo!Jenny archive.
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp butter (pasture or grass fed)
  • 1 package sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1/4 tsp himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
  • 1/2 lb spaghetti
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream (organic, grass fed if possible)
  • 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
In a pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add the garlic and stir, allowing it to cook for 1-2 minutes. Mix in the butter until melted. Add the mushrooms and saute for 3 minutes. Add the salt, pepper and chicken stock. Raise the heat to high and let it come to a boil. 2. Once it is at a rolling boil, add the pasta and cook for as long as the box’s directions indicate. Reduce the stove to medium heat and mix in the parmesan until completely melted. Turn off the heat and stir in the heavy cream.
