Pasta with Creamy Mushroom and Zucchini Sauce

    40 minutes

    This is my own invention and so good, healthy and easy that I wanted to share it with someone! It consists of cooked bow tie pasta covered in a creamy mushroom and vegetable sauce. A complete vegetarian meal in one dish. You can use milk or skim milk instead of cream depending on how rich you want the dish to be.

    My husband and I both thought this recipe was delicious. Because I like my pasta saucy, I pureed about half the veggies, making a thick sauce, and chopped the other half. A little extra salt, pepper and parm on top and yumm! It's rich and unique, I never would have thought of it myself. Thanks!  -  27 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A great recipe! You dont need a food processor. I just chopped everything finely. Parmesan cheese adds more flavour rather than dumping salt into it.  -  27 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I felt the sauce was a very creative base or foundation to which to add, making it quite versatile. If it would have called for more seasonings I would have given it a 4. I chose to add fresh ground pepper, garlic salt, a pinch of paprika and a pinch of dry mustard. It was quite tasty. Next time I would saute the veggies with evoo before putting them in the food processor for more depth.  -  23 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
