DIRECTIONS:
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and mushrooms, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and browned about 5-6 minutes. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.

Gradually whisk in vegetable broth, rosemary, thyme, and basil. Cook, whisking constantly until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in heavy cream, goat cheese, and Parmesan until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes.

If the mixture is too thick, add more vegetable broth as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Stir in pasta and gently toss to combine.

Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.

Cook’s Tips:

To add an even deeper mushroom flavor, you can add some dried porcini mushrooms (that have been soaked of course) and add a bit of the liquid you use for soaking them. Since I wanted a quick and simple dish, I went for using only fresh mushrooms.

Recipe Variations:

Add cooked chicken or shrimp for a simple variation.
