Tomato mushroom pasta

Pasta - tomato mushroom2


This is a very easy tomato mushroom recipe. You’ll love how all the flavours blend in together. The basil leaves a pleasant aroma and the mushrooms’ meaty texture are two things that I love most about this recipe.

I am sure you will love this mouth-watering tomato sauce, I can’t describe the smell in the kitchen while I am cooking it.
