Mushroom Farfalle With Cream Sauce Recipe

Posted on March 9, 2011


One night last week, I deviated from our meal plan a bit.  I wanted to make a comfort dish for my hubby with an ingredient that he loves.

I just happened to be flipping through the newspaper recipe section (I like to veganize the restaurant dishes that are sometimes included), when I found a recipe for Pasta with Mushroom Sauce.   Mushrooms are one of his favorites, and I had the ingredients on hand to veganize the dish.  I served it with steamed fresh green beans and salad.

Mushroom Farfalle with Cream Sauce:

  • 1 box farfalle (bow tie) pasta
  • 1 tablespoon Earth Balance buttery spread
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 12 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup Tofutti cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and rinse.

Melt butter in a skillet on medium heat.  Add mushrooms, onion, garlic, salt and pepper.  Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add wine, and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat.

Add cooked pasta, cream cheese and parsley.  Season with additional salt, if needed.
