Creamy Spinach and Mushroom Penne Pasta
45 mins (prep 30, cooking 15)
18 ingredients
8 servings
A lacto-vegetarian pasta dish using spinach, mushrooms, onions, garlic, and cream cheese to create a thick, delectable tomato sauce. The original recipe only called for cream cheese, canned pasta sauce, spinach, pasta, and parmesan cheese. I added the mushrooms to give the sauce more substance.
