Ingredients

Instructions

Sautee the onion and mushrooms

  • In a large skillet heat, the butter, olive oil, and chopped onion over medium heat or until the onion become translucent.
  • Now add the sliced mushrooms and stir until they are cooked and tender (about 4-5 minutes).

Reduce the white wine

  • Bring the heat to high and pour in the white wine. Let it cook out and reduce for about 1 minute.

Add tomatoes, cream, and spices

  • Now you can add the crushed tomatoes, freshly pressed garlic, salt, pepper, and paprika. Stir for about 2-3 minutes over high heat.
  • Next, you can add the heavy cream and let it come to a simmer.

Add in the cheese and cooked pasta

  • Cook the rotini pasta in a large pot of salted water as instructed on the package or al dente.
  • Now remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the grated parmesan cheese, along with the cooked rotini pasta. Stir all the ingredients together for about 2 minutes over medium heat.

Notes

What to serve with this vegetarian pasta
This Creamy Tomato and Mushroom Rotini Pasta tastes amazing on its own, but if you really want to make the meal special, try adding some of these dishes. Start with a chopped Caprese salad or Antipasto salad. Serve some Foccacia bread or Garlic Cheese bread on the side of this creamy rotini. If you like soup, you can't go wrong with this delicious Chicken Gnocchi soup (Olive Garden copycat).
