Creamy Mushroom Pasta

Is your little one a fan of pasta? How about a change from the usual tomato based pasta sauce? Try this easy creamy mushroom pasta sauce recipe! This recipe yields enough sauce for one large plate of pasta for an adult.


2 tablespoon butter
5 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon flour
300ml fresh milk (might need some extra to adjust sauce thickness)
1 tablespoon cream cheese
5-6 fresh mushrooms (portobello, shiitake, or button mushroom), washed and sliced
Some mixed herb
Pasta, cooked until al dente


Melt butter over medium fire and sauté garlic until fragrant. Add mushroom and fry until a little browned. Add milk. Stir flour into the mixture to thicken the sauce. Add cream cheese and stir until all of it melts into the sauce. If the sauce appears to be too thick, add some more milk and adjust consistency to your liking. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Bring sauce to a boil and pour it over cooked pasta. Garnish with a dash of mix herb on top. Serve warm.

Looks yummy? I used spirals so that my tiny human will be able to self feed easily. If your little one is at the same "I-don't want-you-to-feed-me" phase, try different pasta shapes like fusilli, penne, macaroni, and shells that tiny fingers can hold easily! In fact, your little one will probably be fascinated with pasta shapes that they have not seen before. Hehe.
