I’m in constant need of comfort food like this as soon as the clocks go back ⏰

I love how creamy this pasta dish is. It’s got a richness to it that makes it perfect for an autumnal night. It was completely dark when I left work this evening and the only thing keeping me going was the prospect of something carby and comforting when I got home. 

The sauce is made from a mixture of sour cream, mustard and mushrooms with a good helping of butter too. This recipe is definitely not one for vegans but thanks to the meatiness of the mushrooms it’s a vegetarian recipe guaranteed to keep meat eaters happy.

To really kick it up a notch I added my favourite, umami-giving, secret ingredient Marmite to the sauce and it made it just that bit more salty and rich. I love it so much but if you can’t get your hands on marmite (or vegemite) then you’re fine to leave it out.

It’s vegetarian but it’s meaty and filling enough to satisfy everyone so you can make it any night of the week.

This is also a filling and comforting recipe that’s perfect for when you’re in need of cold weather comfort food.

It’s such an easy recipe to make on a weeknight and takes only a few minutes longer than it does to boil the pasta water.
