White Mushroom Pasta Sauce

This White Mushroom Pasta Sauce is a very fast and easy dinner option. It is great for those busy nights when you get home late from work and you are tired. Although it is such a simple recipe, it is very delicious. I usually serve it atop Angel Hair spaghetti or sometimes with mashed potatoes. My family loves it because we love mushrooms and sour cream and this recipe is a fancy way of putting the two together. One summer my husbands family was visiting us for a week, and I made this sauce and spaghetti for them, They Loved it! My mother in law called me a week later asking for the recipe because the kids were asking her to cook it. And my son Loves it too, he gets the sauce and spaghetti all over the dining room table and his chair and of course himself too. So this recipe is definitely kid approved! 🙂

Directions:

1) Wash the mushrooms, cut them in half and into thin pieces. Wash, peel, and shred the carrots. Finely chop the onion. Start cooking your spaghetti according to the instructions on the box. *Yes, this recipe is so fast to cook that by the time your pasta is done cooking the sauce will be ready!*

2) In a Large frying pan or Wok (I used a wok), Heat up 1 Tablespoon of Vegetable Oil on Medium-High heat. (I did a 6.0).

3) When the Oil heats up, add the carrots and onion into the wok. When the carrots and onions get soft, add in the mushrooms. Boil 1 Cup of water in the tea kettle or small pot.

4) When the carrots and mushrooms are soft, and the onion is soft and translucent, add the whole container of sour cream. Lower the heat to Medium (I did 5). Mix it well.

5) The sour cream will melt and turn into a thick sauce. Add the 1 cup of boiled water and 2 cubes of chicken flavored bouillon. Add some salt/pepper to taste and 1 teaspoon of Mrs.Dash Seasoning, or any seasoning of your choice. *Don’t forget to keep mixing the sauce so that it doesn’t burn.*

*Serve immediately atop spaghetti or mashed potatoes. The sauce will thicken once you put it on the spaghetti and it will taste really good!*
