What You’ll Need for this Mushroom Fettuccine:
- Butter and lots of it 🙂
- Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Parsley for topping
First, melt some of the butter in a large, deep skillet. Add the mushrooms and garlic and let them do their thang. After about 10-15 minutes the mushrooms will be softened and deep brown. While the mushrooms are working, bring a big pot of salted water to a boil.
Next, we add MORE butter and cream to the mushrooms. This is when you realize that things are going to get goooood. Bring the sauce to a simmer over low heat while the fettuccine pasta finished cooking.
Add the cooked noodles to the creamy mushroom sauce. Don’t forget to set aside some of the pasta water. We’ll use the reserved pasta water to thin the sauce. Give everything a toss and add the grated parmesan cheese. YUM. Slowly add the water until the consistency is smooth and just right.
Finally, sprinkle a large handful of chopped fresh parsley on top. For some added color and freshness!
Now pile the creamy pasta onto plates. Don’t forget to have extra parmesan cheese on hand. Pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy!
