Last night I tried something new! Recently I've been thinking it would be  nice to try a new pasta recipe, something a little creamier.  I tend to stick with something really simple, olive oil, tomatoes and garlic are a favorite.  I had made a really easy (and equally tasty) alfredo sauce, but that can be so heavy.  So I wanted something a little lighter but still flavorful.  I decided to look for something that involved mushrooms, after those yummy sauteed baby bellas on Monday, I couldn't wait to make something else with them.  I looked up a few recipes, but of course made up my own.
First, I browned some chicken with garlic salt and pepper and then baked it while I made the sauce.
For the sauce, I started by sauteeing sliced mushrooms in olive oil a little garlic salt and pepper until they were all tender.  Then I put the mushrooms aside in a bowl.  I sauteed a little garlic in olive oil to bring out the flavor then I put the mushrooms back in and added a little thyme.  Then I added a little heavy cream.  I wanted just cream, but the grocery store didn't have it.  The recipe called for 1/2 cup of white wine, but I forgot it at the store, and didn't have any handy. Without it, the sauce separated a little, but once I mixed it with the pasta, you couldn't tell.  It was DELICIOUS!! I don't  know what I was expecting, but it was great!! It was just creamy enough and it was still light.  It was great with the chicken! I cant wait to try it again, but this time with the wine!
I really need to work on coming up with titles for these posts.. haha
