Tasty Tuesday: Bow Tie Pasta with Mushrooms and Gruyere Cheese

My sister Kelli recently started a blog Save Big. Eat Well. where she shares daily tips to help you save money at the grocery store and eat well. Today Kelli is sharing one of her go-to recipes for Bow Tie Pasta with Mushrooms and Gruyere Cheese and I can't wait to try this easy weeknight meal.

One of my favorite things for dinner is al dente pasta with sauteed mushrooms.  It tastes so fresh and is also so easy to make.  When I first made this recipe for Bow Tie Pasta with Mushrooms and Gruyere Cheese I knew I had a winner.  This meal has been made countless other times in our family and it is always a favorite.

Here's what you'll need:

12 oz Bow Tie pasta
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 of a white onion
16 oz mushrooms (I use organic mini bellas)
1/2 Tbs of garlic
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup vegetable broth
3/4 original greek yogurt 
1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
Nutmeg to taste
Fresh parsley to garnish on top


1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.  (I love my pasta super al dente so I usually cook my about a minute less than what the box recommends.)  Drain.

2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add chopped onions and season with salt and pepper.  Cook onions until golden and caramelized.  Add mushrooms and garlic.  Cook mushrooms until liquid evaporates and mushrooms are tender (about 12 minutes).  Add vegetable broth, cook about 5 minutes or until the liquid evaporates, stir occasionally.  Add the greek yogurt and stir until combined.  Add cooked pasta, Gruyere cheese, nutmeg, salt, and pepper taste.  Toss gently to coat, allowing enough time for the cheese to melt.  Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Serve immediately.

I hope you enjoy!
