Creamy mushroom fettuccine for dinner anyone?

I have always keen to prepare meals made from pasta.
The only reason being: Healthy and less time consuming!

But I'm not so prone with mushroom tho. Well I have it sometimes in my meals but I'm adding it simply because my husband loves mushroom. Be it grey button, oyster and what not. Hence, on a one fine evening I'm thinking of having mushroom fettuccine for dinner. I browsed the recipes on the net and found various version of preparing the buttery cream; some people finely diced the mushroom while others blended it.

I chose to blend them (what's the purpose of having a blender if you are going into fuss by dicing them? Haha) Remember, less time consuming is a crucial factor in the kitchen when you are having a toddler who simply loves re-organizing stuffs in the kitchen cabinets. I'm serious. So these are the steps in making your own delectable creamy mushroom fettuccine.


The ingredients:
  • Fettuccine pasta (the amount depends on how many pax you're serving, I'm cooking for 3)
  • Shallot - 1 medium size, diced
  • Garlic - 2 clove, chopped
  • Wheat flour - 2 tablespoons
  • Grey button mushroom - diced. I'm not sure I'm using how many grams that day. I purchased the small pre-packet one at Cold Storage
  • Buttercup butter - 2 1/2 tablespoons
  • Dried oregano - 2 teaspoons
  • Beef sausages - 3 pieces, I'm using Ramly's black pepper sausages
  • Parsley - There's only kuchai in the fridge so belasah saja..
  • Heavy cream - 150ml. I change it with evaporated milk since I have plenty of them on the shelf =D I also get myself a Campbell's mushroom cream with potato. Well just in case if the cream doesn't becoming as creamy as I wish. But it turned out just perfect!
* Contingency plan is crucial too when you're doing things for the first time. Hek

Directions:
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente; drain
  2. In a large saute pan melt the butter over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and stir until the juice started to evaporate
  3. Add in the garlic, onion and stir until softened and put in the flour
  4. Pour in the evaporated milk and bring to boil
  5. Salt and pepper to taste
  6. Cook, stirring occasionally until the sauce reduced by a third and becomes thicker.
  7. Turn off the heat and let the sauce cool for few minutes and blend it
  8. Return the blended sauce to the saute pan and add in the sausages and daun kuchai and the creamy sauce should be ready by then
  9. Place fettuccine on plates and ladle even portions of sauce over top.
Bon appetite!

  3. oyeke. tula xsemua benda kt dapur leh main. aku plak mmg manfaatkan sebaiknya hobby ihsan yg suka mengemas tu. dia mmg kemas letak baik2 cantik2 tp cumanya bukan di tempat sepatutnya la hihi. dapur aku ada pintu. tp kadang2 tu dia buat perangai jugak. kalau aku tutup pun dia nangis kaw-kaw punya. drpd aku n hubby hilang sabar so baik bg dia masuk. but not all d time la dia buat perangai.
