The Best Mushroom And Cream Sauce Spaghetti

The Best Mushroom and Cream Sauce Spaghetti Just hearing the words Meatless Monday causes me to revolt, wanting to run into the kitchen and eat as much crispy bacon as I possibly can. Has anyone else had the same reaction? Well, not only have I turned a new leaf on the whole Meatless Mondays theme, I created The Best Mushroom And Cream Sauce Spaghetti that can take anyone who has “a case of the Mondays” and turn that frown upside down. The collaboration of thyme, lemon zest, garlic and shallots perfumes this dish filling it with a delicious and heavenly aroma. Most mushroom pasta dishes left me wanting more, not this one, its perfection on a meatless plate.

Simple, elegant, perfection…This Mushroom And Cream Sauce Spaghetti altered the way I look at Meatless Mondays forever. Your taste buds will be overly surprised at the abundance of flavors that pair together so beautifully. A light ,delicious, refreshing and satisfying meal.

The perfect Meatless Monday side to your pasta…
