A Big Hug in a Bowl – Creamy Mushroom Pasta

Tonight I’m cooking for one as Hubby is on his way back from Ireland. I hate and I’m useless at cooking for one. Too often do I end up having a bowl of cereal because I don’t have the motivation to make anything else. Well tonight I decided I should make an effort. With some mushrooms and creme fraiche in the fridge I set about making a creamy mushroom pasta dish. I really enjoyed it and it was like a big hug from inside while I wait for Hubby to return.

Now, should I leave the remainder pancake batter for Hubby when he gets back, or do I whip up a batch of pancakes now?…the Nutella is calling…

Creamy Mushroom Pasta
Serves 1

splash of olive oil

1 tsp parsley
1 huge big dollop of creme fraiche
80g spaghetti, dried

1) Get pasta on the boil. Gently fry the mushrooms in the olive oil until softened. Stir in garlic and fry for another minute. Stir in creme fraiche and parsley.

2) Once pasta has cooked mix it in with the sauce and serve.
