The Ingredients

I did have to shop for most of the ingredients for this recipe, but nothing was expensive or difficult to find. I bought the mushrooms already sliced to make my life a little easier. Also, I bought julienned sun-dried tomatoes because they would be easier to chop. Finally, I opted for dried basil. I had it on hand, and I didn’t want leftover fresh basil to go to waste.

The Process

This really was an easy recipe, and I had it ready to serve in 30 minutes, just as the recipe listed. I didn’t do all the prep work before I started cooking. Instead, I prepped as I went straight nice there was plenty of time between steps. I also started boiling the water to cook the fettuccine at the same time I began the sauce.

I thought my sauce would turn out too thin, but I ended up closer to the opposite. Watch the sauce carefully once you add the fettuccine. The pasta absorbs the liquid, and the heat from the stove evaporates it as well. I recommend removing the pan from the heat when the sauce still looks a little thin so you end up with a creamy but not too thick consistency.

Clear & Accurate Directions

Fettuccine and mushrooms topped with creamy basil and sun-dried tomato sauce is going to become a regular on my dinner menu. I expected the tomato and/or basil tastes to be overpowering, but the cream seemed to mellow the tastes nicely. They are definitely the most prominent tastes, though the garlic, mushrooms, and pasta don’t get lost. What’s more, this recipe is easy on your budget and even easier to prepare for a weeknight meal.
