Recipe: Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Pasta

A while back I was sent a little bundle of goodness from Murray's Cheese. They sent cheese and some recipes - one of them caught my eye right off the bat - Creamy Parmesan Reggiano Penne Pasta - cheese, pasta and mushrooms - yes! 

I decided not to use penne - I've been obsessed with this straight macaroni lately so that was my choice and I think there were some elbows thrown in from the end of a box. It looks creamy & mushroomy doesn't it?!

They sent me a great packet with some Parmesan Reggiano to sample! 

Shredding a POUND of Parmigiano Reggiano is a hella lot of cheese!!!!! That is an 8x8 casserole dish right there! Whoooo!

While your pasta is cooking, you saute up onion, garlic and mushrooms. Then add chicken broth, butter and heavy cream. It will cook down to a delicious light and creamy sauce.

That's the thing I love is because it was so light. With only 1/4 cup of cream - it doesn't get weighed down.
