Mushroom Pasta Recipe-Creamy Mushroom Tagliatelle Pasta in White Sauce

This Creamy Mushroom Tagliatelle Pasta is quick and easy to make, full of flavor and absolutely delicious. It makes a filling and satisfying meal and is perfect for lunch or dinner. Usually white sauce is made with all purpose flour but in this recipe I have substituted all purpose flour with whole wheat flour and believe me, there was not much difference. The tagliatelle pasta (tagliatelle is a traditional type of pasta from Italy) combined with the creamy sauce and mushrooms was simply divine. Today we will learn how to make creamy mushroom pasta following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.
