The succulent crunch of mushrooms is always a great value-add for any pasta dish. In this quick and simple recipe, cooked penne is drowned in a lovely sauce that brings together the creaminess of white sauce, the unique texture of mushrooms, the aromatic accents of oregano and of course, the universal appeal of cheese!

Although it is cooked in less than 10 minutes, the Italian Pasta with Mushroom Sauce is as tasty and appeasing as any pasta dish can be!

Italian Pasta With Mushroom Sauce

Very tasty; good change from useful tomato-based pastas. I made some changes because I am vegan (don't eat dairy). As substitute for butter I used olive oil and a little coconut oil for richness. Instead of dairy cheese I used a homemade 'cheese' made from cashews. I didn't have time to make white sauce (I would have used non-dairy milk if I had made it) but I had some leftover celery soup I had made earlier so I used this instead and it worked well. (Similar to this soup http://tarladalal.com/Cream-Of-Celery-Soup-%28-Protein-Rich-Recipes-%29-33254r). Also I included some garlic, cooked some fresh green peas with the mushrooms for a bright colour and added a splash of non-alcoholic white wine while cooking the vegetables.
