Pasta with Creamy Mushroom-Pea Sauce

May/June 2007

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (14 votes)

Peas combine deliciously with wild mushrooms, such as chanterelles, but they are hard to come by this early in the season. You can still get the depth of flavor from more available creminis.

Really good for such a quick recipe

I've made similar recipes before but this was better & for fewer calories. Almost followed the recipe. (Took prosciutto out before adding garlic. Added a Tb of shallots. Microwaved peas to avoid mushiness, & may have been heavy-handed with mushrooms- eyeballing, not measuring.
Otherwise no changes.)
Will be making this again!

Very good, quick

I really liked this!! It was filling and delicious :) I used bacon instead of proscuitto (2 slices) The portions were huge. I added one 4 oz piece of grilled chicken and left the table feeling more than satisfied. I will surely make this again.

Pretty darn good - hubby gave it a thumbs up. He did add extra salt. I did change two things... I added 1/3 C. shredded Parmesan and used fat free half & half. I think it definitely benefitted from the Parmesan, but the fat free half & half was a failure. The sauce didn't thicken up effectively. All in all, I would make this again using heavy cream AND the Parmesan.
