Pasta in Mushroom Sauce with Sun Dried Tomatoes

A creamy Mushroom Pasta that can make satisfying one bowl meal. I made White Sauce from scratch and its flavored with fresh button mushroom, garlic and shallots. It's very quick and easy dish and my daughters love it. This sauce is an extremely versatile sauce and can be served with number of dishes. 

One can make this sauce with any type of mushroom
including button, dried Porcini or all mixed. Never wash the mushroom as flavor will be lost in that process. You can add white wine to this sauce, but I did not use it. Saute Mushroom in butter for the best flavor. I used whole grain pasta which offers fibers, vitamin and minerals. 

 This sauce is so creamy, delicious and lip-smacking. Due to the sauce you won't even notice that you used whole grain pasta. I was so happy with the fact that my girls went for seconds serving. Which is why I want to make this dish again and again.
