Today’s culinary creation is homemade capellini with meatballs and mushrooms.
Ingredients: angel hair pasta, pork meatballs, mushrooms, Alfredo sauce
Capellini or angel hair pasta is one of my favorite types of pasta. I love the long, thin noodles.
I’ve had it many times at restaurants but it was my first time to try making this dish at home.
It was nice to find that angel hair pasta was fairly simple to cook. I had angel hair pasta boil for about four minutes to five minutes until the pasta was tender. I did not want to overcook it.
Up next was sautéing the mushrooms and adding the Alfredo sauce to the sautéed mushrooms. The meatballs were prepared in the oven earlier because this took the longest. The meatballs were added to the Alfredo sauce and mushrooms and allowed to simmer and then the pasta was added.
I love the simplicity of this dish. It is quick yet comes out very nice and tasty. Lessons learned though from my first time making this is that it is obe needs to eat this dish right away or the noodles will absorb the sauce! If you can’t serve or eat this dish right away, it is best to separate the sauce.
