Creamy mushroom sauce

I use this sauce for pasta dishes or just to top over some rice or protein like chicken. Soooo delicious and easy!

Ingredients

1  8oz container of baby bella mushrooms sliced (or regular portabella)
About 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons butter
2-3 cloves garlic minced
Salt and Pepper to taste
~1/4 cup of heavy cream


  1. In a medium skillet on medium high heat, melt butter and saute garlic.  
  2. Add in mushrooms and stir continuously until soft.  About 5-10 minutes
  3. Slow stir in the cream until you reach a gravy like consistency.  The sauce will thicken after you add in the cheese.  You can always add more cream after adding the cheese to get the consistency you want.
  4. Add in Parmesan cheese and continue stirring.  
  5. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.  (I usually don't add any  more salt b/c the cheese is enough)

Serve over pasta, chicken, or rice.  I have used this as a sauce with linguine and sauteed shrimp and garlic.  Delicious!
