This simple mushroom cream sauce tastes gorgeous served on top of a freshly cooked plate of pasta such as the tagliatelle or penne. It makes a lovely light lunch or a quick and easy starter for a supper party with friends. Itís also great to serve on top of toasted muffins for a different spin. Single cream and warm mushroom make up the base of this sauce. This recipe serves 2 people and will take 15 mins to prepare and cook. This sauce would also work perfectly with steak or chicken for a meaty, main course that the whole family can enjoy.
