Rich No-Cream Wild Mushroom Pasta Sauce
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

I got this recipe from http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/main-dish/recipe-rich-nocream-wild-mushroom-pasta-sauce-041199
This rich, creamy pasta sauce was the result of an experiment. We wanted to make a creamy, mushroom-y pasta topping with no cream. We're trying to watch our diet a little better, and while we were eating pasta there was no need to indulge in cream, right?
The creaminess and thickness in a sauce can come through many methods. One of these is cream - the common ingredient of Alfredo and other cream sauces. Some pasta toppings, like carbonara, use eggs to thicken and give richness.
One lighter option is a roux, or flour-thickened, sauce. We had seen this dismissed as too difficult. Pshaw! A roux is nothing more than a little butter and flour, cooked over low heat until the flour grains swell. Then they are whisked together with hot liquid, the grains swell to thicken the sauce and voilá! You have thick, creamy pasta sauce without too much fat.
The bulk of this sauce is white wine, broth, and mushrooms. We don't use a lot of wild mushrooms - they are expensive, and just a few will do here to give flavor.
The result? Silky, thick and creamy pasta sauce - full of toothsome mushrooms and a little green parsley. The flavor of wine, wild mushrooms, and black pepper predominate - and it's not too fattening! Leaves you an excuse for plenty of cheese...

I love this drizzled over bananas and vanilla ice cream... or as a dip with bananas and strawberries.
