Cream Mushroom Sauce Penne

I have been slacking in my recipe department, but I’m back on track and I’ve found a great recipe that’s quick and delicious! I am a huge fan of pasta, and when I found this recipe in my recipe book, I couldn’t stop making it! For the past few weeks I’ve made this dish at least once a week! It’s a must try in my books! Bom Appetit! ~Love CTina xoxo

– 4 tbsp. butter
– 1-2 onions or shallots sliced
– 1 lb mushrooms sliced
– salt and pepper
– 1 tsp. all purpose flour
– 2/3 cup heavy cream
– 2 tbsp port (I use occasionally)
– 4 oz sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped
– 12 oz dried penne
– 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Melt the butter in heavy-bottom skillet. Add the onions or shallots and cook over low heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add mushrooms and cook over low heat for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle in the flour and cook for 1 minute.

Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the cream and port.  Return to heat and add the sun-dried tomatoes, stir occasionally for 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a pot of boiled water, add pasta and cook until tender.  Once cooked, drain and add the mushroom sauce and cook for 3 minutes.  Serve in a warm serving dish and sprinkle chopped parsley.
