Pasta & King Oyster Mushroom in Whipped Cream

Tonight's dinner was quick and simple.
My hub had curry keema with baguette. (I always cooked extra and freeze for lazy/busy days.)
My daughter and I had pasta.

The Pasta:

200g Fusilli, boiled with a little salt till al dente, drained and set aside
2 king oyster mushroom, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
oil (Used canola, ran out of olive oil, didn't want to use butter)
salt to taste
a little water
whipped cream
dried oregano, basil from bottle
parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a pan and saute garlic for a while. Then add mushroom and stir fry till slightly soft.
Add in pasta and salt. Pour in about 75ml whipped cream and a little water. Stir to mix. Bring to a boil and it's done.
To serve, sprinkle oregano, basil and cheese.

  1. I want MORE oyster mushrooms, please! Looks delicious.

  2. I like to use these mushrooms to cook pasta with cream too. They give a wonderful texture to the creamy sauce.

  3. I recently did the same to king oyster mushrooms too. They are so "meaty" :)

  4. Have never tried making pasta with king oyster mushrooms before - thanks for the recipe:D

  5. What a delicious pasta dsih. I love king oyster mushrooms. Yum!
