This creamy pasta dish can be made in 20 minutes. Even the pasta is cooked in the pot.

Since I made the one-pot pasta a few weeks ago, I have been looking for other easy recipes that are sure to be popular with the whole family. This zucchini mushroom pasta is just that.

This recipe does not require any pre-cooking, sautéing, or other preparation. Just throw the pasta, uncooked, into the pot.

Once the pasta is cooked, add a bit of heavy cream or milk to make a creamy, thin sauce. Easy as pie.

Don’t be surprised when people rave about this amazing pasta. Jason declared that this was the most delicious pasta he had ever eaten! I didn’t mention how simple it was. He did the dishes, so it was a fair trade.
