Creamy Mushroom Linguini

This is definitely one of the yummiest recipes I've made in a while and one of the least healthy (but it's just so good)!

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil (more if mushrooms look dry)
1 pound crimini mushrooms, cut into slices
1/4 pound shiitake mushrooms, cut into slices
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 cup white wine
1 cup cream
2 cups romano style cheese (I used a local romano style cheese called Tye from Hidden Hills Dairy)
1 pound fresh linguini (or 1 box)

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  In the mean time saute the mushrooms in the butter and olive oil until tender (about 8 minute).  After about 4 minutes add the garlic.  Once mushrooms are tender and garlic is fragrant sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms, then slowly add the white wine. While the white wine is cooking start cooking your fresh pasta (start sooner if using dry pasta). Once white wine has reduced a little (about 4 minutes) add the cream.  Drain pasta then return to pot.  Add sauce to pasta in the pot then add 1 1/2 cups cheese and toss until evenly coated.  Top with the extra cheese when serving.

  1. Yum. Sounds delicious. Paul is making sauerkraut, bits of cabbage flying all over the kitchen as he chops; he is planning corned beef and cabbage for dinner.
