Grown-Up Go-To Pasta


Well, it ain’t too pretty.  But it is tasty, and made with plenty of things you probably already have at hand.  Apologies for the lack of precise measurements.  I kind of just threw things into the pan.

Grown-Up Go-To Pasta

Serves 2


2 Servings Fettuccine

2 -3 Tbsp. Butter

1/2 -1 tsp. Dried Rosemary

2-3 Cloves Garlic, sliced thin or minced

1 Package Button Mushrooms, sliced

1/2 c. -ish Red Wine (mine was a cheap Cabernet Sauvignon)

1/4 c. -ish Heavy Cream

1/4 c. Parmesan, grated

Salt & Pepper


Boil pasta in salty water until al dente.

Melt butter in a large sautee pan, adding rosemary and garlic.  Once pan is hot, add mushrooms and sautee until soft. Add wine and heavy cream to the pan, let boil to reduce.

Drain pasta and add to sautee pan, tossing to coat with sauce.  Continue to reduce until it is a glossy consistency.  Grate Parmesan over pasta, incorporating into the sauce.  Salt and pepper to taste.
