Wild Mushroom Alfredo

A girl has gotta have her pasta once in a while...and when you add cream, butter and cheese to it...well...you found the way to my heart...and stomach...and expanded waistline. Sigh...back to the treadmill I go.

In a heavy bottom saucepan on high heat, melt about 4 tablespoons of butter with about 2 cups of mixed wild mushrooms...saute to coat them in the butter and add 2-3 cloves minced fresh garlic. Saute until mushrooms are cooked and starting to brown.
Add about 2 cups of heavy cream to the mushrooms and turn heat down a bit (medium-high). Let the sauce simmer while stirring constantly.
After a few minutes the mixture will start to thicken and deepen in colour. Add your seasoning (little bit of salt and a tsp of fresh ground pepper.

Toss in your cooked pasta and about 3/4 Cup fresh grated Parmesan Cheese. Toss to combine and turn off the heat.
Last step is to toss in about 2 Tbsp of fresh chopped Italian parsley.
Garnish with more fresh cheese and parsley. Prepare to be couch bound for a few hours after this one...I swear I was in a food coma.
