I really love the nicely balanced flavors in this vegetarian mushroom pasta sauce. Yes, it’s creamy, but the lemon juice and touch of Dijon mustard really brighten the sauce.

Since there’s no meat in this dish, and you can skip the parmesan cheese if you wish, I’d say it’s just decadent enough without being too much.

This easy mushroom pasta recipe is good enough for company, so if you’re not sure what to serve at a vegetarian dinner party, here’s an idea! 😉 I use cremini mushrooms in this recipe, but white mushrooms or whatever variety you have on hand will work!

How to make creamy mushroom pasta

Making this creamy vegetarian mushroom pasta is easy. You start by sautéing the mushrooms with some oil, butter, and garlic. After a few minutes, take them out of the pan temporarily. You then make a quick pan sauce with the lemon juice, white wine, seasoning, flour, Dijon mustard, and cream, and then add the mushrooms back in. Finish off by tossing the delicious sauce with your pasta of choice. That mushroom white wine sauce is so tasty.

Pro tip: Don’t consume alcohol? Replace the white wine with chicken broth (or veg broth if you’re vegetarian).

I love the mushrooms + cream combo. I have a pretty recent recipe for creamy garlic mushrooms that you should definitely check out if you feel the same way!

Servings: 4


  • 8 ounces uncooked pasta (I like fettuccine or linguine)

  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms sliced thin
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley chopped, to taste

  • Boil a large, salted pot of water for the pasta and cook it al dente according to package directions. 
  • Meanwhile, add the butter and oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. 
  • Add the mushrooms and garlic to the pan and sauté for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the mushrooms release most of their water and it's cooked off.
  • Take the mushrooms out of the pan and set aside.
