Friends, today I’m sharing with you my twist on a classic Beef Stroganoff. Since I’m little bit of a mushroom fanatic, I tweaked the original recipe and replaced beef with mushrooms.
I’ve also threw in several unexpected ingredient that intensified the taste of mushrooms even more.
Let’s face it, mushrooms can taste bland.
I get it why so many people don’t like them, especially if talking about simple and most commonly found mushrooms like Portobello or White Button Mushrooms.
And if you don’t properly season them, your final dish may lack some serious flavor.
Spoiler alert…this situation is not going to happen with this recipe.
My creamy mushroom pasta is full of flavor. A little bit smokey, a little bit tangy and surprisingly easy to prepare.
Where Does Mushroom Stroganoff Originate From
Mushroom Stroganoff is the adaptation of a famous and well known recipe of Beef Stroganoff created by French chef Andre Dupont in 1871.
The dish is named after Russia’s Minister of the Interior Duke Aleksander Stroganov.
The main players in this recipe are meat (in our case it’s mushrooms) and sour cream sauce. And although original recipe doesn’t include pasta, in my opinion it begs to be served over it.
For my easy Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe I used Portobello Mushrooms which are the easiest to find these days.
However, you can also make this pasta with Shiitake, Maitake or Oyster mushrooms which will bring even more aroma to the final dish.
In this recipe, I also used chicken broth but you’re more than welcome to go with vegetable broth.
If you scroll down to the recipe, you’ll notice that instead of a more tradition sour cream I used Crème fraîche, which I frankly speaking is obsessed with.
If you can’t find Crème fraîche in your local grocery store, no problem.
And there’s one little trick that I use quite often and you can use it too.
Simply mix sour cream and heavy cream in equal amounts and you’ll get a decent substitute of Crème fraîche. Easy-peasy!
Can you reheat it?
This Easy Mushroom Stroganoff is best when consumed right away.
Reheating dishes containing mushrooms is not recommended.
I like how this creamy mushroom pasta comes together in less then 30 minutes, which makes it perfect for lunch as well as quick dinner for the whole family.

This recipe is so good and comforting! True winter meal that leaves you full and satisfied.

- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta al dente or until cooked.
- While pasta is cooking, melt butter in a medium skillet and over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes.
- Add mushrooms and cook until all water evaporates and mushrooms are slightly browned, about 7 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for 30 more seconds.
