Pasta with Mushroom Cream Sauce


It was very grey all day today.  I woke up with a headache, but fortunately it wasn’t a migraine but just a normal headache and painkillers worked quickly. I was worried a little because we are going away from the day after tomorrow and a migraine would be a pain to handle.  When it’s not a migraine painkillers work well if I take them soon enough but sometimes they don’t work when it starts in my sleep as it’ll be too late when I take them after I wake up.


Today’s dinner was pasta with mushroom cream sauce.  It didn’t look like there was enough cream left so I also used some milk and flour so it would get a little thicker.  No recipe, I just made it up.  I sautéed onion and garlic in olive oil and butter, then added mushrooms and continued sautéing, then added some flour and sautéed it all until it all the flour disappeared and it stopped being floury in taste.  Then I was going to add some left-over Champagne and I had the bottle right next to the cooker but I totally forgot!  I added milk, let it simmer for a few minutes, added the cream, let it simmer just for a minute or so, then added some grated Parmesan cheese.  I turned the heat off, grated some lemon rind and added a little lemon juice, salt & pepper then added cooked pasta.  After plating it, I grated more lemon rind and some parmesan cheese, and it’s done.
