Simple Mushroom Pasta

I sometimes get lazy to cook! I bet you have those days too…
I knew I wanted to make pasta with mushrooms but I didn’t know what sort of dish I was heading for. So the laziness in me decided to do a super simple but flavourful dish.
250g Pasta of your choice
1 punnet mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
75g butter
1/2 tsp garlic
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk

Boil pasta until almost cooked through, drain and put back into pot.

Wash and slice mushrooms. Heat butter in pan. Let it bubble then add garlic and herbs. Fry for a little while then add mushrooms. When cooked through add the mushrooms only to the pasta. You should have the butter with all the mushroom juice in the pot (approximately 3-4 tablespoons of liquid). Add flour to this and braise for 2-3 minutes. The mixture will be thick. Slowly add milk and keep mixing. Let it simmer. You want a pouring consistency sauce. If your sauce gets too thick add a little more milk. Season with salt and pepper and add to pasta. It will look very saucy but remember once it goes into the oven it will dry up a bit.

Empty the pasta into a casserole and pop into the oven until it bubbles. Serve hot!
