Farfalle with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Hi there pals. I wanted to quick share a delicious recipe that I made last week.


  • 1 pound of farfalle (uncooked)
  • 1 tbsp butter 12 ounces presliced exotic mushroom blend (I used a more affordable blend of mushrooms that were not so exotic- those things are pricey!)
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (I use the kind that comes already minced in a jar)
  • 1 & ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • ¼ cup white wine 2/3 cup whipping cream
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese


  • Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain.
  • Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the mushrooms, onion, shallots, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper; cook 12 minutes or until liquid evaporates and mushrooms are tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Add wine; cook 2 minutes or until liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Add the cooked pasta, whipping cream, and cheese, tossing gently to coat.
  • Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • Garnish with minced fresh parsley, if desired.
  • Serve immediately.

For fluffy, evenly sized cheese shreds, this is the perfect grater. Its design is based on that of a rasp, the small and efficient woodworking tool. The cutters are especially sharp, which guarantees easy grating.The large handle allows for a firm grip, and the completely flat grating surface makes it easy to move the cheese across the blades. Carrots, onions, and medium to firm cheeses all worked beautifully with this grater. It's also an excellent choice for larger strips of citrus zest or ginger.
