Creamy One Pot Plant Based Pasta With Garlic Butter Mushrooms
I don’t know about you, but the one thing I dislike about cooking is getting a bunch of dishes dirty because the recipe calls for “this bowl” and “that pan”. This one-pot pasta is super easy and it doesn’t completely mess up your kitchen.
We love it because step by step, you just add more things to the pan and by the end you have this incredible tasting dish.
We topped ours with a spur of the moment thought to fry up some garlic butter mushrooms and after eating, we realized that this dish really isn’t complete without them. So, we highly, highly recommend.
We use washed, dried, and chopped white mushrooms. In a small fry pan we sauté them in Earth Balance Vegan butter (about 2 tbsp), adding garlic salt and black pepper.
Nothing more, nothing less.
And they do not disappoint.
The recipe also calls for cherry tomatoes, but regular tomatoes work as well.
You can make this recipe a healthier or gluten-free option with different choices of pasta. Vegetable based pasta is always our go-to, but whole grain, or gluten-free will work, too.
