Sometimes you just NEED a plate full of cheesy pasta! And my favorite way to prepare pasta is with mushrooms and a cheesy sauce. This Mushroom Ricotta Pasta Recipe is perfect for those carb-craving days!
When I prepare a pasta dish I prefer simplicity. I usually use only a few ingredients because it’s really about getting that pasta into my belly!
This Mushroom Ricotta Pasta Recipe is a combination of mushrooms, ricotta, garlic, parmesan and thyme. A few of my favorite things.
Why can’t pasta and cheese sauce be a health food!?!
