Pasta with Mozzarella Cream Sauce

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Oh my goodness!! Dinner last night was amazing!!! My apologies, there isn't a photo, and there aren't many exact measurements either. Go ahead and start water boiling for your favorite pasta before you begin. You can cook it according to the box.

You'll want to melt equal parts butter and coconut oil in a skillet. How much you use will depend on how much you're wanting to make. I did a tbsp of each. I then added a container of Baby Bella mushrooms, a couple cloves of garlic, a small pepper , and 1/4 of an onion, all diced small. I let all that cook 3-5 minutes, then added three large handfuls of spinach leaves. While that continues to cook, melt 4 tbsp of butter and 4 tbsp coconut oil in a separate skillet, add 2 tbsp flour and cook for a minute or two. Slowly add 1 1/3 cups whole milk. (You could use half and half or cream for a more decadent sauce.) Bring to a simmer and add salt and pepper to taste. Then add 1 cup mozzarella cheese and stir. Then combine your pasta, veggies and sauce. Easy as that!! You can add any additional seasonings you like, fresh basil would really kick this up.

*I also added diced smoked pork chops I had in my freezer since my hubby likes a little meat. You could easily add chicken to this too.

This was so good. Seriously, and simple.
You can add whatever veggies you like! This made enough for my husband to have three bowls, me and Carly to eat, and have lunch today too. And I only cooked 1/2 pound of pasta.
