One Pot Creamy Mushroom Pasta
Prep time

Total time
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 2
  • 8 oz of crimini mushrooms (baby bellas) wiped clean and sliced
  • 2 cups of greens (I used a combination of spinach, kale, and chard)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 sprigs of thyme, leaves stripped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups of water
  • 6 oz short cut whole wheat pasta (such as fusilli, penne, or bow tie)
  • 3 tablespoons of Sherry or White Wine
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Sauté the mushrooms, greens, thyme and garlic in a large pot over medium heat until greens are wilted and mushrooms are browned.
  2. Remove everything from the pot and set aside.
  3. Return the pot to medium high heat and add the water, bringing it to a boil. Add the pasta and cook, stirring frequently until all of the liquid has either absorbed or evaporated. (If all of the water is gone and the pasta is not quite done yet, add ½ cup of water at a time until al dente.)
  4. When the pasta is finished, add back in your mushroom mixture and reduce heat to medium.
  5. Add the sherry and cream to the pasta and stir vigorously to combine.
  6. Sprinkle in the parmesan and stir to combine.
  7. Serve immediately.
