Pasta with mushroom cream sauce and fennel

Pasta with mushroom cream sauce and fennel. Pasta, mushrooms, fennel, garlic and a creamy cream sauce. Super easy and absolute Soulfood -

Pasta with mushroom cream sauce. And fennel.

Ultra creamy. Spicy. Able to take your mushroom cream sauce game to a whole new level.


First things first: This pasta is the epitome of Soulfood.

It starts with an ultra-creamy cream sauce, peppered with crispy-brown mushrooms and sweet fennel. In addition, of course, pasta! I opted for linguine this time because they are perfectly enveloped by the sauce and we always have just the right balance of pasta and mushroom fennel love on the spoon. Spaghetti or tortellini, for example, are also great, you have the choice!

For even more flavor, some dried rosemary and thyme and if you like it quite decadent, you are also welcome to shovel a large load of parmesan cheese on it.

Because friends, the autumn begins and we have absolutely the duty, the cuddly well-being dinner mumbled into a fluffy blanket on the couch to celebrate. The best of all a few candles (I oller romantiker, but that's sooooooooooooooooo, or ??) and the hottest fall evening is nothing in the way.

Another very important thing.

The secret ingredient in this recipe is the fennel. Because: We know mushroom cream sauce. But what makes this sauce so irresistible and totally different from other mushroom sauces is the light fennel sweetness. The harmonizes so perfectly with the earthy-savory taste of the mushrooms that it will blow you away!

So. You can replace the cream with creme fraiche or sour cream and a sip of water. And if you want a little more spice selection, you are also welcome to take herbs from Provence. But you have to use the fennel, ok? After all, you want to be catapulted into completely new taste spheres!

Ready to spoil you with a large portion of pasta? Let's go!
