Simple Portabella Pasta

Simple Portabella Pasta

My favorite recipes are those that feature just a few ingredients so that the subtle and intricate flavors are not lost. …not to mention, they’re just easier to make! ;)

Nearly every time I go to the grocery store I look at the portabella mushrooms longingly. They’re so good, but so expensive. This time I decided to take the plunge. I figured I could just employ the basic budget bytes principle of combining expensive ingredients with bulkier inexpensive ingredients to keep the cost down. Well, it worked marvelously!
