Introduction: RECIPE | CREAMY CORN MUSHROOM PASTA
This is one of my easy 10-minute pasta recipes that is creamy, tasty and filling. I learned it from my good friend's mother back in grade school and overtime added a few changes of my own. For the pasta, I tried a new brand called Delverde. They have an assortment of organic to non-organic pastas and their mission is to produce the pasta in an environmentally friendly way. "This is the added value that Delverde brings: the choice of natural production methods, using only the purest water and the very best durum wheat semolina." For more information on their product, click here. So give this recipe a try and let me know what you think below. Also if you cook this or any recipe of mine, take a picture of it and tag me at @christieathome on Instagram or @christieathome1 on Facebook and it could be featured on Fridays.
