Pasta with portobello mushrooms, asparagus and boursin

Submitted by: CFMOSS

Introduction

I have a very different variant with chicken which is good, too. This recipe is more directly related to one in a food & wine cookbook but has been heavily adapted. Originally I just used olive oil spray but as my family has increased our calorie intake, I've added modest fats back into our diet. This recipe works with olive oil spray.

Ingredients

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 pound portobello mushrooms sliced and halved
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 1/4 cups low fat/low salt chicken broth
    1 package light boursin cheese
    1 pound asparagus cut into 2" pieces
    12 oz. whole wheat pasta shells or penne

Directions

In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Add mushrooms and salt. Cook stirring occasionally about 8 minutes. Add chicken broth and boursin cheese. Stir until well mixed. Cover and turn the heat off.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling water for about 6 minutes THEN add asparagus for about 4 more minutes. (This works nicely when using pasta like shells or penne - other sizes may need modification.) Drain pasta and asparagus. Toss with mushroom sauce. Recipe is calculated for 6 servings which will be approximately 1 3/4 cup in size.

  • Delicious! Especially with the addition of the red pepper and 2 tsp of flour as other reviews suggested. The whole family loved it! - 9/8/10

  • This was really yummy. I would probably add a little crushed red pepper for some zing, and a little flour to the mushroom sauce to thicken just a bit but this was a keeper. Thanks for sharing. - 5/12/10
