Garlic and Mushroom cream Pasta

After a somewhat long break, I'm back to tingle your tastebuds with another one of my all time favourite recipes. Actually to be very honest, I am not much of mushroom person myself. But because of 'him' I have started eating them...because he is crazy about mushrooms. *I can see my future!! ;)*
Till today I can only have small button varieties in my pasta or more!

But 'he' absolutely loves this one whenever I make here we go.

Garlic and Mushroom cream Pasta

Ingredients --

1 packet Penne Pasta
1 200-300ml tub of Thickened cream (can use lite one too!)
2-3 cloves of garlic cut in small pieces
A handful (or as much as you like) white button mushrooms halved/thinly sliced
a few table spoons of olive oil(preferable)/cooking oil
Chilli flakes (optional or how hot u'd like)
Crushed Black pepper
Salt to taste
a few Basil leaves for dressing

Method --
1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions in the packet. Drain and put aside.
2. In a wide pan, heat the oil, then add garlic and mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes. Add the pepper and the chilli flakes so they get fried a bit with the garlic n mushroom.
3. Add the cream and bring the mixture to a steady simmer. Do not overcook because the cream may start getting watery.
4. Add the boiled pasta and season it with salt *and pepper if you need more* and mix well.
5. Pour in a bowl and dress it with parmesan cheese and basil leaves.

Its that easy and truly ummylicious!
This is so quick to make that you wont believe!!
