Creamy Pasta With Mushrooms, Spinach, and Peas

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is a quick dinner I made one night with what I had in the freezer and fridge regularly. We really enjoyed it. We didn't have any meat, but I will probably make it again with fish or chicken. This could be a gluten free meal by substituting gluten free pasta. I used corn spaghetti. It could also be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable stock.

Very nice dish. I had spinach/mushrooms which needed using, so this was perfect. I did however, and I hope you will forgive me, omit the peas as I also needed to use up some Italian sausage, so added that instead. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. :)
