Meatless Monday: Pasta with Portobello Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, and Goat Cheese

With a title like that, how could I not want to make this recipe when I first encountered it? Those ingredients pretty much scream “Elly!” Not to mention, they also tend to be in my kitchen at all times.

This is a perfect year-round vegetarian pasta dish that’s easy to make, hearty, and flavorful. This is definitely one of those dishes where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Just a few simple ingredients provide great earthiness and depth of flavor.

I altered the ingredient amounts a bit in this recipe, mainly to make it healthier (a  bit less fat, less pasta for the same amount of servings, etc.).  But I also added a little booze. 😀 I didn’t add peas to this when we had it for dinner, since we ate it with a salad, but I did add a small handful to my lunch leftovers.

  1. This looks great! I bought quite a load of goat cheese a little while ago, and was just pondering what I should do with it next. . . . This could be perfect. Love the carameilized onions too. I may have to commit a meatless blunder though, and go with chicken instead of mushrooms, just so the kids will eat it!

  2. I made this last night and it was delightful. We are trying to become a meat-free household and this was a great dish to add to our budding repertoire. I did the full pound of pasta and I wilted a bag of spinach into the mix as I am not a huge fan of green peas. I also used more goat cheese since I upped the amount of pasta; I probably used about 4-5 ounces. Thanks for the recipe, Elly!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! I was also thinking a wilted green would be a great addition – I love spinach, chard, etc. with caramelized onions.

  3. This looks delicious! We’re able to get some awesome local mushrooms and now you have my mind turning on our next use for them. Thanks for the idea! 🙂
