Ingredients Needed to make Mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo

- Butter - Just some salted butter to saute our mushrooms and garlic.

- Milk - I have used Whole Milk for this recipe. You can also use 1%/ 2%/ Soy Milk/Almond Milk.

How to Make Mushroom Fettuccine Without Cream?
STEP 1: Sauté Mushrooms and Garlic
The first step of the recipe is sautéing Mushrooms. So, for that add some butter into a pan. As soon as the Butter melts, add sliced White Mushrooms. Sauté them until caramelized. This takes around 10-15 minutes. Let the Mushrooms soak in all the goodness of the butter and get beautifully caramelized.
Add minced Garlic and Sauté them for another 1-2 minutes.
STEP 2: Add Milk and Remaining Butter
Now add some milk and remaining butter. Allow it to simmer over medium-low heat. In this recipe, I am using Whole Milk. But, I have tested this with 1%, 2%, Soy Milk, and Almond Milk. It tastes just as good. However, when you make it with whole milk it is way creamier.
STEP 3: Cook Fettuccine
Next, cook Fettuccine as per package directions. Reserve some of the pasta water and keep it aside.
STEP 4: Combine Fettuccine with Mushroom Sauce
The next step of the recipe is to combine Fettuccine with Mushroom Sauce. Mix well to combine. Use a pair of tongs so that it is easier for you to mix.
STEP 5: Add Reserved Pasta Water and Grated Parmesan Cheese
Now pour in the pasta water that you had reserved. Just add as much as you need. Finally, add in some Grated Parmesan Cheese for that delicious cheesiness.
STEP 6: Season and Serve
And, lastly, Season this with Salt and Pepper and Serve right away.
Other Possible Variations of this recipe:
- Instead of White Mushrooms, you can use any other variety of Mushrooms you like.
- Instead of Whole Milk, you can also use some heavy cream to give this recipe a creamy touch.
- You can also replace minced garlic with garlic powder.
Tips to Make the Best Mushroom Fettuccine
- Do not hurry while caramelizing Mushrooms. This is the most important thing that you should keep in mind. Allow the Mushrooms to get cooked completely before rushing onto the next step.
- Make sure you do not cook garlic for long because it will burn in an instant. So just stir for 30-seconds.
- Do not throw away all the pasta water. Neither add all of the reserved water into the pot. Just add as much as you need.
- Add Parmesan Cheese after taking it off the heat.
