Recipe Notes

  • Fusilli, rotini, penne, rigatoni, cavatappi, bowties or any short pasta would work for this recipe.
  • For the best finished dish, do not overcook the pasta.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until it wilts and all the liquid in the pan has evaporated, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. 
  2. Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Slowly add the cream and cook, stirring, until thickened. Add the cheeses and stir until melted. Add the pasta. Toss. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.
