Sun dried tomatoes, or roasted red peppers. I also like to throw on a couple handfuls of spinach.

I usually finish off with sriracha for spicy flavor. Everyone seems to love it! Creamy sriracha

Do you have a recipe and what’s your rating of the dish?

Not OP but you can do these kind of creamy pasta sauces with literally anything.

  1. Fry something in a pan (in this case mushrooms) until it starts to brown and develop fond on the bottom of the pan.

  2. Add in chopped shallots and garlic, fry for another minute or two.

  3. Deglaze the pan with stock or wine (white wine for mushrooms), scraping all of the fond off the bottom.

  4. Reduce until thicker, season with herbs and salt/pepper

  5. Pour in cream and stir, simmer for another few minutes.

  6. Toss in pasta with a drop of starchy pasta water to help combine everything.

I do this weekly with gnocchi. I gently fry the gnocchi in a separate non-stick frying pan while I'm doing everything else in a stainless pan. Right at the end I mix it all together with a bunch of finely chopped parsley and way too much parmesan.

I'd just look up a recipe for gnocchi. It's incredibly easy and only time consuming because you need to boil and mash potatoes.

Life hack: microwave the potatoes instead of boiling them and scoop out the flesh. Takes 8 mins and results in great gnocchi.

That’s my recipe for most pasta sauces. Replace mushroom with canned tomato and you’ll get a vodka sauce. Vodka doesn’t actually make a big flavour difference imo.

KnaxxLive

But it is fun as hell to flombe the shallots/garlic/whatever else is in the pan!

Just a tip for that though, get the pan hot, use like less than a shot of vodka, and after it lights on fire, hold it BELOW the stove. I've had flames lick my ceiling with a shot of vodka before so I always hold it down now.

Instead of Vodka I add a cup of onion soubise (caramelised onion with butter), some Calabrian chilli paste to create Carbone’s spicy vodka rigatoni. It’s really good, I highly recommend!

Serious question: why shallots over onions? I never really keep shallots in my pantry.

frumbelow

Shallots are the "champagne of onions". They're sweeter but not cloyingly so. They're also less "hot" than regular onions, but richer at the same time.

Try this sometime if you ever find them cheap. Take a big handful, peel and end them, split the big ones to get em roughly the same size, toss them in a little olive oil and salt and bake them in a loaf pan low and slow (like 300F - 325F, and keep an eye on them after 30-45 min) until they're deep brown and soft (could even be an hour or more). You won't believe how good they are.

And to make it even better grate some parmesan into the sauce and let it melt before mixing it with the pasta.

My dad does something like this with Campbell’s cream of mushroom, and while that sounds kinda welfare, he uses fresh seafood and it’s legit.

joelcosta94i

People are asking for a recipe, so let's eyeball it. Here's how I would do it:

  1. Add some tagliatelle or fettuccine to boiling salted water.

  2. Season shrimps with some salt (you can do this a bit earlier so the shrimps absorb some of the salt), heat up a pan with some vegetable oil (I'd say olive oil, though some people might consider that a waste) and brown the shrimps slightly on each side, then take them out. Don't worry if they're not cooked through, they will later.

  3. Sauté the mushrooms in that pan (add more oil if necessary) with some finely chopped or minced garlic. Since I haven't actually tested this, you might want to add the garlic a bit later so it doesn't burn.

  4. Once the mushrooms are to your liking, deglase with a little white wine (or water if you don't have wine, you could even use some of the past water, as we're using it later anyway). Let the wine dissolve for a bit, then put the shrimp back in and stir for a few seconds.

  5. Now add some creme, season with salt and pepper, and let it simmer reduce for a while. (Maybe reduce the heat to a medium). This (and in the next steps) is where the shrimp will finish cooking.

  6. The pasta should now be close to al dente (I'm not confident about the timing, so it might be advised to start cooking the pasta after browning the shrimps in step 2. Basically exchange step 1 and 2). Before they turn al dente, take them out (don't throw the water away just yet) and mix them into your mushroom-garlic-shrimp-creme sauce.

  7. Add a tablespoon or two of the pasta water to the dish. The pasta will now finish cooking in the sauce and soak up some of the flavour. If necessary (e.g. if it's too thick) add a little more pasta water to the dish.

I have never tried this recipe, but this is how I'd do it. I could also imagine adding some grated parmigiano to the sauce. While it may be redundant with the creme, I can also see how it may give it some extra funk in terms of flavour. A little bit of lemon juice might also help, though you'd have to decide on your own if you like mushroom creme sauce with a touch of lemon. It doesn't look like the recipe has any greens, but chopped parsley might also fit quite well.

How is Parmesan redundant with cream? Completely different flavors.

joelcosta94i
14
6 days ago

One might argue that both things are often used to create a creamy texture, and so the cheese would only be there to add some flavour. So then it comes down to whether you think that extra kick is good, or whether it overshadows and doesn't complement the rest, and thus become redundant, but that's up to personal flavour.

Redundancy might be the wrong word here, but I can't find a better word for overdoing it with too many ingredients.

Whosa_Whatsit

Parmesan is not creamy. Even when melted into a cream sauce, Parmesan lends more of a crystalline/granular mouth feel.

ARSEThunder

I’m gonna have to respectfully disagree here. Parmesan definitely will melt down and add creaminess to a dish. Cacio e Pepe and carbonara would like to have a word.

Pekari

KnaxxLive

From what I've seen, Parmesan is used primarily for seasoning almost like salt. Carbonara is creamy because you add egg yolk and that acts as a binder for the starch in the pasta water and the fat from the guanciale.

The parmesan is "creamy" in cacio and carbonara because you add pasta water (and egg yolk in carbonara) to it.

Whosa_Whatsit

I mean, it is a cheese. But compared to heavy cream? Calling it redundant? Naw

joelcosta94i

6 days ago

I stand corrected then. I derived that idea from dishes like Cacio e Pepe, where in my experience it turned out kinda creamy, or in tomato sauces where it turned the sauce creamier as well, but those might be specific to those recipes then I guess.

Made authentic alfredo a couple weeks ago. Just pasta, butter, parm and some of the pasta water. It turned out creamy and absolutely no hint of granular mouth feel. I much prefered it to the kind using heavy cream, as it was a lot lighter. Recipe here.

CarloGambino420

You don't use cheese because there is seafood in the pasta, not because it's redundant with the cream.

Evigilant

This. And personally, cream is such a crutch. I think instead of cream, should do white wine and lemon juice. The wine and lemon will do wonders to brighten the dish and accentuate the herbs and shrimp. Creme, especially cream + cheese, is going to keep the sauce thick and it's going to turn into a block in your stomach.

If you want a cream sauce, go through the effort to make a roux and veloute...unless you want the ton of fat of the cream.

jotpeat

Some people - myself included - like the heaviness of cream sauces and the flavor a really good cream can add. Same for the cheese. I usually finish mushroom sauce with a good truffle cheese.

KnaxxLive

As someone who made a roux for a garlic and Parmesan bechamel the first time this past week, I will never, ever buy jarred Alfredo sauce again. I haven't bought jarred sauce in years anyway, but literally never again. It's too easy and comes out way lighter.

Dheorl

A couple of changes I'd make. I wouldn't simmer the cream, just slowly reduce, would add a little extra butter just before adding the cream, and wouldn't add pasta water; just don't overly drain the pasta. I always used fresh pasta as well, so my order would be very different, but that's a different matter.

I think it'd would be a weird combination, but not unheard of - if you look up cream seafood pasta recipes several have mushroom. I suppose to each their own shrugs

Maybe it’s an American thing? Mushroom and cream is a combination made in heaven as well as seafood and white wine. Seafood will get lost in cream unless you put some lemon on it (but acid may split the protein in cream) but mushroom with seafood? It may taste like the seafloor, don’t you think?

My absolute favorite dish at my favorite restaurant has mushrooms and shrimp together and it's amazing. It's a truffle gnocchi with a creamy pesto sauce. It has fresh tomatoes and sauteed mushrooms topped with grilled shrimp. The flavors really go together and it doesn't taste like the seafloor. Haha

I just asked this same thing before reading you comment. I don't think cream and shrimp is a bad combo, as long as the sauce stays light. But mushroom and fish are two opposite flavors. One is from the earth and one is from the sea.

I tend to cook the creamy pasta differently every time. Sometimes I use chicken, sometimes seafood like prawns and scallops, depends on what I have in the fridge.

Ingredients in this one: Tagliatelle, mushrooms, prawns, butter, double cream, single cream, milk, white wine, stock (I used vegetable stock this time cuz that’s all I had), Parmesan cheese, fresh garlic, salt, pepper, Italian herbs

I don't really do measurements (sorry guys!), since I like being spontaneous with cooking.. I'm glad it turned out fine this time!

Thanks for the support, guys! And let me just try to find the basic recipe and post here.
