Mushrooms for Power Up!

When I was a kid, the Super Mario game was extremely popular. I still remember how Mario will become big and powerful whenever he eats the mushrooms along the game. I wasn’t a fan of mushrooms really and was actually surprised how often I’ve been incorporating mushrooms in our dishes recently. For the past weeks, these cans have been  a mainstay in our pantry and in at least 1 dish weekly:

Jolly mushrooms

The mushrooms add some oomph to our menu and I like the creaminess that I get from using the cream of mushroom. These are my go-to ingredients for that easy and fast dish that I have to prepare when I’m pressed for time.

Grilled Dory in Fettuccine Mushroom Sauce

Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Set aside.

Saute a small, chopped onion and 2-3 cloves minced garlic and add some chopped shiitake mushrooms.  Add in one can of Cream of Mushroom sauce. Simmer for about 5 mins.

Separately, rub cream dory with salt and pepper. Grill for 5-7 mins each side in griller.

Mix in  the cream of mushroom sauce to the fettuccine then top with grilled dory and some chopped parsley.
