penne with white wine and mushrooms

Penne with White Wine and Mushrooms

This delicious dish is creamy without being too heavy. The earthy flavors are beautiful in this dish, and if you serve this with a full-bodied chardonnay, it makes a very elegant supper. The penne pasta is paired with mushrooms, and the sauce is made with onions and white wine, along with bouillon and cream. The finished dish is served with some fresh-grated parmesan on top for a lovely presentation.

Although this is a vegetarian dish as it stands, add some chopped ham to the recipe and swap the vegetable bouillon for a chicken equivalent, and you will end up with something equally tasty and offering some meat too. Leftover chicken would also work in this, instead of the ham. The best way to make this is to soak the mushrooms first, then get the pasta cooking. While the pasta cooks you can make the sauce, then everything will be ready at more or less the same time.

The earthy taste of the mushrooms goes really well with the cream and white wine sauce. The recipe does call for dried mushrooms but if you would rather use fresh ones then go ahead. This is an excellent way to make mushroom pasta, and you can serve this with some steamed green asparagus on the side perhaps, or with a side salad if you prefer. The whole family will enjoy this wonderful Italian pasta dish. Continue reading
