Pasta with Veggies in a Cream of Mushroom Sauce


I really haven’t made serious pasta before. It just happened that there wasn’t much left in the kitchen except some pasta and some canned stuff. So I ended up experimenting and making Pasta with a sauce of cream of mushroom.


The fun part was experimenting with the sauce. So basically I heated some butter, added some milk, garlic and pepper (sounds pretty weird) and when the mixture had heated up, I added a whole can of cream of mushroom (Campbell’s). To add a bit of tanginess mix in some Tomato and Basil sauce and kick the whole thing up with some garlic pepped. And then after a while you put in the cooked pasta. That’s it. When you are almost done, toss in some shredded parmesan cheese to make the pasta rich and cheesy.


The whole thing really came out awesome - the cream of mushroom base provided the creaminess and the chopped garlic and tomato paste added a complimentary taste. And lastly the pepper granules provided the right amount of hotness. See below.


Step 1 - Boil water and then throw in the pasta and let it boil

Step 2 - Boil some cut veggies (make sure you have corn)

Wow this looks like a delicious treat and it looks sp quick and easy, just what I would love for a Sunday afternoon. Sunday afternoons for me is the perfect time to chill with something quick and easy ( as I like to spend some time on house cleaning and setting things in order during the day so that I have a smooth week ahead) and catch up on a good movie or just enjoy with family.

Love you for the blog! I am head over heels for pasta salads, preferably minus the veggies and plus the meat ;). Also, i prefer the spiral pasta, it just feels great when i ooze in each piece! In fact, step 6 is the best part I loved, pasta salad never tasted great without garlic and pepper! Thanks a lot

Thank you for the reassurance I was looking for. It's Sunday and I have the same can of soup to make a meatball n pasta sauce with. I felt like experimenting by adding it to a homemade marinara sauce for a creamy effect. Needed a little flavorizing but I sure ended up with a tasty dish! I just needed to see what others have tried before I ruined the only sauce components I had.
