Bowtie pasta with mushrooms
Despite the fact that we couldn't find the Cremini mushrooms or enough Shitake mushrooms at the supermarket, we substituted white mushrooms and made this recipe anyway. And it was incredible!! Both daughters said tonight's dinner was better than a similar dish at Macaroni Grill. And the four of us ate our fill for about seven dollars worth of ingredients, with leftovers to boot. Not too shabby!! It's good, real good. It only took about an hour to prepare too!
To check the spelling of "cremini" mushrooms, I just looked them up online and learned that they are also called "baby portobella" or "baby bella," which WERE at the supermarket. So next time I'll make this with the right kind of mushrooms. Could it be better than what we ate tonight? Hmmmm...
