One of my favorite things… Among others. Is trying new recipes. A few months back a came across one that had me hungry. Most people won’t try anything with mushrooms but I’m not like that. I love them with pasta and especially Spinach! And every once and awhile we try a new recipe in the house. And why not try those with you all when we do!
The Mushroom Florentine Pasta Recipe was very easy to make and very worth the time of making. My Daughters and pretty picky eater and all I know is she told me… “Mommy! This is really good!”
so i thought why not put it out there for more people to try out.
