Creamy penne pasta in Alfredo sauce with mushrooms and herbs

Creamy Garlic Mushroom Penne

There's something inherently comforting about pasta, and it's no wonder why I love it so much. Pasta is the epitome of easy and simple cooking, yet it manages to deliver incredible flavors. With its Italian roots, pasta serves as the perfect canvas for showcasing a nice, high-quality butter that enhances its taste and richness. Now, let me introduce you to a delightful recipe that combines the flavors of garlic, mushrooms, and penne pasta, all elevated by the addition of a flavorful Garlic and Dill Butter.

To prepare this delicious pasta dish, start by finely dicing onions or shallots and sauté them in a pan with olive oil until they become translucent and tears start forming in your eyes. Add minced garlic to the pan. Chop your preferred mushrooms (shiitake, crimini, or morels work well) and add them to the pan. Mushrooms are forgiving, so don't worry about overcooking them. Sauté for about 5 minutes, then add heavy cream (preferably 33% or more) and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes until it reduces. Add cooked al dente penne pasta and incorporate two large scoops of Butter Buddies Garlic and Dill Butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Generously sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top (because there's no such thing as too much cheese) and finish with freshly chopped parsley or dill from a local grandmother's garden.

Now, let's enjoy this delightful dish!
