Mushroom Mania : Oyster-Shitake Alfredo

DSC_0130

Do you smell that? Yup…mushrooms again. We just can’t get enough! Still working on the large box of shitake and oyster mushrooms, the wife and I were faced with a decision: how do we finish all of these?! We already did flatbread and stroganoff, but wait – I married an Italian…PASTA! Done and done. While any mushrooms will do, I will say that the shitake and oyster mushrooms provided a distinct taste that went really with a cream sauce. Anyway, get out your favorite pasta and have at it, hoss!

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 5 chopped sage leaves
  • 1 cup heavy cream (light cream, even whole milk will work)
  • 1 minced shallot
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup parmesan┬ácheese
  • Shitake and oyster mushrooms to your liking (the more the better!)
  • Green peas (frozen will do)
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • Box of your favorite pasta (something that won’t let go of the creamy sauce)
  • Salt and Pepper
