Created by:
Cuisine: Italian
Recipe type: Pasta
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 lb fresh mushrooms (crimini, baby portabella, brown)
  • 12 sprigs fresh parsley, minced (approximately ½ cup)
  • 6 Laughing Cow cheese wedges, light*
  • 1 cup marsala wine (sweet red dessert wine)
  • 8 oz egg pappardelle
  • * Pasteurized spreadable Swiss flavor cheese wedges.
Instructions
  1. Use a damp paper towel to wipe mushrooms clean of debris. Cut each one into 4-5 vertical slices.
  2. Thoroughly coat a large skillet with vegetable spray and warm over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and continue to cook for 6 minutes. Stir frequently to cook evenly. Lower the heat if needed.
  3. Stir in the parsley and simmer for 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat.
  4. In a small sauce pan, drop the cheese wedges, pressing down with the back of a fork to squash them. Add the marsala. Stir with a wooden spoon to mix. Cook the sauce over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Add sauce to the mushrooms and keep covered while the pasta is cooking.
  6. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Be careful not to overcook. This pasta will only require 4-5 minutes once them come to a boil. Drain.
  7. Pour pasta over mushroom sauce and serve immediately (fresh egg noodles absorb liquids quickly). Grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese may be added as desired.

Gushers vs Tricklers


"Gushers" are quickly-digested carbohydrates that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose and fuel appetite.

"Tricklers" are slowly-digested carbohydrates that are gradually released into the bloodstream and sustain satiety. These are the good carbs.
