This Truffle Mushroom Shrimp Pasta is an easy, creamy, elegant dish that’s perfect for romantic dinners at home and Sunday lunch with the family.
I’m a fan of Truffle Mushroom Cream pastas and I can’t count how many times I’ve made it for my family. It’s very easy to make and it’s one of those pastas that’s perfect for those days when you’d prefer to take on meatless meals.
To make it a little bit different this time, I added shrimp. What I love about shrimp is that it takes no time to cook — just a quick sauté in olive oil and it’s done. Second thing I love about it is that it gives so much flavor! The truffle cream pasta was completely changed — it became a lot more flavorful and a lot more tasty.
Everyone loved it, including my sister who calls herself Anney who lives next door. Because of this, I thought it would be nice to cook a pasta dish once a week for the family. Minsan kasi I get carried away with our everyday life and what my family likes — so a lot of dishes gets repeated over and over.
