Resep: Creamy Mushroom Pasta

A simple and very popular pasta dish, Creamy Mushroom Pasta. Champignon mushroom is the most common, but you can add any mushroom of your choice such as shiitake, shimeji, oyster mushroom, and more. Sometimes, I add bacon, ham, or smoked beef, also some cheese. The most important part is to brown the mushroom before adding the other ingredients. For this recipe I used shiitake which has specific and stronger aroma because I did not put bacon (usually with only champignon). To enhance the flavor, drizzle some truffle oil once it's done, yesss I think I love anything with truffle. 

For the pasta, you can use any from short to long pasta, I prefer long pasta. Do not overcook your pasta, follow the directions on the packaging, and drain 1-2 minutes earlier. Personally I like to cook my pasta with the sauce on stove for one to couple minutes, some people prefer to toss the pasta in a pot. Anyway don't rinse your pasta, and always keep some of the pasta water to lighten your sauce (if you're using cheese). And please don't forget to put some salt into the water, but I don't think if oil is needed.
