12 Minute Creamy Mushroom And Spinach Pasta

I am back with another quick pasta dish that only takes 12 minutes to make the sauce while the pasta boils so both are ready at the same time. My kind of cooking, quick, easy and full of flavour.

Simple ingredients, if you don't have nutritional yeast you could just add a little grated cheese. Just depends what you have on hand to make this with. 

It also makes excellent meal prep for lunch the next day, just leave out the spinach until you reheat it the next day. Lets dive straight on in to what your going to need to make this easy simple pasta packed with flavour. 

What you need; 
160-200g gf pasta depending how hungry you are (serves 2)
150g mushrooms (i used baby chestnuts any will do)
2 garlic cloves 
1 shallot or small white onion 
1-2tsp nutritional yeast 
1/2cup dairy free cream 
1/2cup veggie stock 
2 large handfuls of spinach 

First off get everything prepared, garlic, onion and mushrooms chopped ready you can replace this with garlic and onion powder if your really short on time. Get your pasta on to boil and have a pan heating for the sauce with a little spray of oil (optional). Fry off onion, garlic and mushrooms for 5 minutes over medium heat. I reserved some of the fried mushrooms for sprinkling on top (optional) At the 5 minute mark add in cream, stock and nutritional yeast. Bubble until it thickens, reduce heat. Once pasta is ready add into sauce and coat, add in spinach and stir in the sauce until it wilts. Its now ready to serve and enjoy. 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, hoping to continue this on as a mini pasta series on here but we will see what you all think. Until next time, Helen.
