After you make the bow tie pasta, you will set it aside and work on the mushrooms and sauce. The sauce consists of butter, olive oil, garlic, white wine, whipping cream and salt.

Cook the mushrooms first in butter and oil and then the rest gets added to make this awesome sauce.

Your beautiful pan will look like this. It’s not only delicious but it’s so colorful. I love to serve these one-pan dinners directly out of the pan.

Add a little black pepper and serve. I like serving a pasta dish with a little french or sour dough bread.  It also goes perfectly with a light red wine like a zinfandel or pinot noir.   Your special someone will love this dish for your next date night!

This Mushroom Pasta with Goat Cheese recipe is best served and eaten immediately.  But you could combine the sauce with the pasta ahead of time and heat up before serving.  Then add the parmesan cheese, spinach, and goat cheese.  The spinach definitely won’t keep in the dish overnight.
