Creamy Mushrooms & Buttered Broccoli

Rotelle Pasta with Creamy Mushrooms & Buttered Broccoli

This week at IHCC, we are cooking Jamie Oliver's recipes. If you don't know who this famous celebrity chef is, I don't know which cave are you living in. LOL. One would definitely know him for his classic good looks, cheeky British humor, simple and tasty recipes, and most importantly, he wants us to eat better.

This time round, I made his creamy mushrooms and brilliant (or buttered in my case) broccoli and serve them with rotelle pasta and fried bacon bits. Dinner was so good. :)

Recipe adapted from here and here.

(Serves 2) 

For creamy mushrooms:
2 tablespoons butter1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small red onion, finely sliced
1 cup gray oyster mushroom
Pinch of salt & freshly ground black pepper
1 small bunch parsley, chopped
2/3 cup cooking cream

For buttered broccoli:
Pinch of salt & freshly ground black pepper1 large head of broccoli, cut into bite-sized chunks
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

For pasta:
2 cups rotelle pasta, cooked & drained
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pinch of salt & freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup fried bacon bits

How to:

1. For creamy mushrooms: Melt butter over medium heat in a frying pan. Add olive oil, onions, mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring, until onions and mushrooms are soft. Add chopped parsley and cream. Simmer for about 7-8 minutes, then remove from heat.

2. For buttered broccoli: Boil a pot of salted water over high heat. Once boiling, add in broccoli for about 3-4 minutes. Drain and pour into a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add butter and toss to coat.

3. Toss cooked pasta with olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve with creamy mushrooms, buttered broccoli, and topped with fried bacon bits.

Dinner is served!

  4. I can't agree more than butter is brilliant. Butter in mushroom. Butter in broccoli. Nothing can be better! Brilliant combination.

  5. Oh yum! Those wagon wheel pasta shapes have been a favorite since I was a kid! Love the combination of creamy mushrooms with the pasta and broccoli is always a welcome addition in my home!
