Creamy mushroom anything is a hit in our house. This pasta bake is no different and whenever I make it, I know there will be clean plates all around.

The beauty of this creamy mushroom pasta bake is that it’s the perfect meatless meal especially if you prep it ahead. I often make it the day before and just keep it in the fridge or freeze in freezer-safe foil containers. Simply bake from frozen and dinner is served!

      1 cup = 250ml, so it’s 250ml cream and 250ml milk.

    Absolutely delicious as the vegetarian main of our Sunday dinner and a great side dish for the meat eaters. Even my daughter who claims to hate mushrooms had two helpings. I made it with farfalle because everyone loves those bow ties. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Hi Alida,
    Thanks for a good meal. I just made this for my wife and me and it was very welcome as the outside temperature is dropping toward 0 C. As ever with online and similar sourced recipes by good cooks, I doubled the preparation time. I’ve learned that my inexperience has consequences… I look forward to cooking this one again soon.
    But in the meantime, perhaps a further sign of my inexperience, I’d find it so much easier if recipe writers would stick to one unit of quantity. Mixing grams, spoons, cups and pinches adds an unwelcome layer of confusion as I scrabble for conversion tables. Couldn’t we stick to grams?

      I’m so glad you liked the recipe. I would love to have only one measurement on my blog but as I have a varied, international audience I am trying to cater to everyone’s needs.
