    Ingredients

    • The creamiest mushroom alfredo sauce you will ever have - a sauce so good, you'll want to slurp it with a spoon!
    • Ingredients
    • 8 ounces fettuccine
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 pound cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
    • 1 cup half and half, or more, as needed*
    • 2 cups baby spinach
    • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
    • Instructions
    • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
    • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, mushrooms and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in thyme and dill until fragrant, about 1 minute; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
    • Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in vegetable broth, and cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in half and half until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes.
    • Stir in baby spinach and Parmesan until the spinach has wilted, about 2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more half and half as needed.
    • Stir in pasta and gently toss to combine.
    • Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
    • Notes
    • *Half and half is equal parts of whole milk and cream. For 1 cup half and half, you can substitute 3/4 cup whole milk + 1/4 cup heavy cream or 2/3 cup skim or low-fat milk + 1/3 cup heavy cream.
