Tuesdays At The Table - Portobello Mushroom Pasta

Happy Tuesday, ladies!!  Did everyone have a wonderful weekend?  I haven't left the house since I'm feeling a little stir-crazy.  On the bright side, mom is home and resting comfortable...considering. The first time she's allowed to leave her house is next Tuesday.  Hopefully, my brother & dad will step in and start helping me any. second . now.  or I am going to go absolutely nuts being stuck in the house for the next week too.

Anyway...  I made my parents portobello mushroom pasta for dinner.  Unfortunately, I don't like mushrooms - but it doesn't stop me for making fungus based foods for others.  :-)


Portobello Mushroom Pasta

6-8 oz. portobello mushrooms (rough dice)
1/2 onion (fine dice)
1/2 pint cherry or grape tomatoes
1/2 cup white wine
6 tbsp butter/margarine
4 cloves garlic (fine dice)
1 cup chicken stock (or vegetable)
1 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
pasta (cook per box instructions)

In a large saute pan, melt half the butter.  When melted, add the mushrooms, onions and tomatoes.  Cook on medium for 8-10 minutes until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms get tender.  Add the garlic, stir and cook for a minute or so.  Bring the heat up to medium-high. Add the wine and let reduce by half.  Then add the chicken stock, rosemary, crushed red pepper, salt, pepper and remaining butter & let reduce until you have about 1/2 to 3/4 cup fluid surrounding your vegetables.  Combine your cooked pasta and vegetables together.  Add the cheese, give a quick stir and serve.

What's cooking in your kitchen?

  6. This sounds delicious! I'll have to make this week.

  7. Hi! I posted a tomato-carrot soup recipe, even though it's pretty hot outside for soup, because this one actually tastes good cold! It has carrot, garlic and farro in it, so it's quite thick, and tastes even better on the second day. Enjoy!

  9. My 1st thought was ewww, mushrooms! But you're right, I could be nice and fix fungus food for someone my hubs, who loves them! Glad your mom is recovering well, hopefully you will not go stir crazy in the meantime!
