Brown Butter Mushroom Pasta

Brown Butter Mushroom Pasta

This is basically going to be my dinner every single night for the rest of my life.

I mean, let’s take a look at this lineup here.

TOASTED GOLDEN BROWN BREADCRUMBS.

PERFECTLY SAUTEED GARLICKY-THYME MUSHROOMS.

LOTS AND LOTS OF PASTA.

ALL SITTING IN A POOL OF BROWN BUTTER.

It’s pretty epic. It’s also super simple, quick and fast to whip up. It doesn’t require too many ingredients, and it’s pretty much fool-proof because no one will be turning down this butter sauce. And I mean no-one.

So be sure to serve this with crusty bread, a glass of wine and one fork. Because maybe we don’t feel like sharing this one tonight. That’s just my two cents.
