  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


  • 1/2 pounds pasta, any shape 
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 16 oz sliced mushrooms, any kind 
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3  tbsp white balsamic vinegar 
  • 1 tsp dried thyme  AND dried oregano leaves
  • 1.5  tbsp flour 
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth  
  • 3/4 cup heavy / thickened cream  
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan  
  • 1 cup shredded gruyere cheese 


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, cook pasta as directed. Drain and set aside. 
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally. Cook until the mushrooms are golden brown and most of the liquid has evaporated about 4 to 5 minutes. 
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and add garlic, white balsamic vinegar, thyme, oregano. Cook until garlic is golden, about 1 minute. Then mix in flour and cook for an additional 30 seconds.
  4. Add in broth, cream, parmesan, and gruyere. Stir until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth. Then bring the sauce to a simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until it thickens.  Keep it at a simmer. If it becomes more of a boil, reduce the heat.
  5. Remove from heat, salt, and pepper to taste, and mix in the pasta. Serve immediately 🙂
