Mushroom is a great source of plant protein. I love mushrooms, they adds umami flavors to everything.
I prefer lighter pasta dishes for dinner so I used light whipping cream for the sauce. Pair the cream with chicken broth, and jazz it up with some grated Parmesan cheese so every bite of the spaghetti oozes with the stringy Parmesan cheese.
The mushroom sauce is light, crazy delicious, creamy and buttery. Toss in some baby spinach, and you have the most delicious one-pot mushroom pasta for your family, and picky-eater proof.
Trust me, try my creamy mushroom pasta recipe and I am sure everyone will be blown away!
