The Creamy Mushroom and Tomato Pasta Recipe was created with the purpose of bringing on the table a dish that would give warmth and flavor bite after bite: you won’t resist the creaminess of this Italian Pasta with mushrooms and cream.
To do so, we thought to take advantage of a seasonal ingredient, namely Mushrooms, and it will be up to you to choose which variety to use, whether the more common Champignons, the refined Porcini mushrooms, or a mixture of Mushrooms to try new flavors and textures. It’s almost impossible to resist the goodness of this Mushroom Sauce, especially when used to give life to a mouth-watering Cheese and Mushroom Pasta enriched with some Tomato Sauce.
We used Robiola cheese to add creaminess to this sauce. Robiola is a soft Italian cheese that you should easily find at cheese shops or in speciality stores; you can replace the Robiola with any other creamy spreadable cheese you prefer.
To prepare Creamy Mushroom and Tomato Pasta, start by cleaning the mushrooms you choose. Then cut them into chunks and keep them aside.
Peel the onion and chop it finely with a knife then brown it in a pan with a clove of garlic, a little oil, a pinch of salt until it is tender and transparent. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and deglaze with a little white wine. Add a pinch of pepper and cook for about 10 minutes, until tender.
Spice with a pinch of pepper, some chopped fresh parsley and cook for about 10 minutes, until tender. Then add the crushed tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook for another 15 minutes or so.
Cook the pasta in plenty of salted water and a few moments before it is ready add the robiola cheese to the sauce and mix it well using, if necessary, with a little of the pasta cooking water. Once it is ready drain it and transfer it to the pan with the creamy mushroom sauce and sauté for a few moments so it is mixed well
Sprinkle with a little chopped fresh parsley and serve your Creamy Mushrooms and Tomato Pasta.
