Author Notes

I love mushrooms combined with a traditional alfredo sauce - it makes for a much earthier dish. —Erin McDowell

Directions
  1. Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water until tender, about 7-9 minutes. Drain and reserve.
  2. In a large saute pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and saute until tender, about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine and reduce completely, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the cream and bring to a simmer. Stir in the Parmesan and peas. Season the sauce with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the cooked pasta and toss to coat. Garnish with parsley and more cheese, if you like.

Review
I always carry three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's pie. My first cookbook, The Fearless Baker, is out on October 24, 2017.
