img_3980

Tonight I decided to make some rigatoni with creamy mushroom alfredo sauce. This is a simple recipe that is pretty quick to make and does not require many ingredients – perfect for a family dinner on a lazy Sunday!

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb rigatoni pasta
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1-2 cups milk, depending on desired thickness
  • 1-3 tbs flour
  • 1/2 lb pound mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup onion
  • Salt & black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan

 

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta, stirring occasionally, about 10-13 minutes.

While the pasta is cooking:

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter to skillet along with the garlic and onions. Add salt and pepper. Once the garlic and onions are slightly browned, add the mushrooms. Cook for 3-5 minutes until they are soft.

Add the milk and add a spoon of flour to control the desired thickness. Add the parmesan. Garnish as desired.

Buon Appetito!
