Creamy Mushroom and Almond Pasta

Total Time

As a respite from The Turkey, this lovely almost-vegetarian recipe found on a wonderful blog, Poppyseeds & Tiger Lilies, , sure hit the spot. The author notes this is a recipe she adapted from volume 38 of Donna Hay magazine. Both the dish & the blog are worth checking out. I am posting so I misplace neither. Can be made really vegetarian with vegetable stock in place of the beef stock. Serve with your favorite sauteed green or simple green salad for a full meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the pasta in salted water according to package directions (about 8 minutes).
  2. While the pasta cooks, saute mushrooms in olive oil until lightly browned.

  5. Cook 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened.
  6. Add the cooked, drained pasta to the pan. Mix together, cover with shredded Parmesan and serve.
