Let’s cook an amazing dish ideal for the festive Christmas dinner! We are making penne with a rich creamy sauce made with caramelized onions, shiitake mushrooms, herbs and soy cream. I won’t tell you much about it. All I’m gonna say is that when my hubby tried it he said with a big smile on his face: this is a feast of flavours! And he is an objective judge! He always speaks his mind and is unbiased! So you have to try this one! It is one of the most delicious pasta dishes I have ever made! Kisses and hugs, guys! Happy new week everyone!

Soak mushrooms in wine overnight. The other day drain them and keep 1/3 of the cup of wine. Finely chop them. In a non sticking pan heat one Tbsp olive oil and saute onions for about 10-15 minutes until tender and translucent. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat. Put the onions in a dish and in the same pan heat one more Tbsp of olive oil and saute mushrooms. Pour the wine. When it evaporates, season with salt and pepper. Add thyme, parsley and garlic powder and cook on medium heat for 10 more minutes. In the meantime cook penne according to package instructions. Place onions in a blender, pour 2 Tbsp olive oil and pulse until creamy. Transfer them in the pan with the mushrooms, pour soy cream and nutritional yeast and stir until well combined. Cook until the sauce comes to a boil. Drain penne and put them in the pan. Stir until they are well coated by the sauce. Serve immediately and top with fin;ey ground almonds and parsley. Enjoy!
