Creamy Pasta Avec Mushrooms & Peas


Another family fave recipe coming your way! 

I don't know about you, but anything pasta is always a major hit in our home! With that being said, it is the best time to try and throw in as many veggies and other goodness because it could be easy to hide! This creamy mushroom & pea pasta is super easy - which is the number one MUST in any recipe or meal we cook - but so delicious. As well, it is good for your toddler and even baby-led weaned baby!



  • 3 cups of frozen peas
  • 2 garlic cloves; or minced garlic equivalent; alternatively, to taste
  • 2 ounces of prosciutto, diced
  • whole wheat pasta of choice; alternatively rice pasta (this is my fave) we love fusilli
  • cremini mushrooms, sliced; 2 cups or to your liking
  • 1/4 cup of white wine
  • 1/4 cup of whipping cream; I use the lactose free one
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • olive oil
  • 1 table spoon of all purpose flour or any alternative 
  • salt & pepper


  1. Off the hop, get your pasta cooked! A tip is to boil your water first, add some salt and then throw in your pasta & peas! Remove and rinse in cold water once cooked to your liking. 

  2. Dice your prosciutto, chop your cremini mushrooms & garlic if you are using cloves. Measure out our peas, white win, whipping cream & chicken broth.

  3.  In a large nonstick skillet add some olive oil & add in your prosciutto, cooking it got about 4-5 minutes, or until it starts getting brown. Throw in your garlic for half a minute and then add in your mushrooms. Mushrooms should release some liquid but if not, add in a bit of water so things don't dry up. Cook for about 4 minutes. Add your flour over the mushrooms, stirring to coat. Add in your white wine & let it simmer for a minute. Finally, add in your broth, allowing it to simmer again; approximately 3 minutes. I also like to add a little bit of the pasta water in here about 1/4 of a cup. Remove skillet off the heat and stir in your whipping cream & pepper. 

  4. Strain your pasta & peas and toss it in with the cream sauce! 

  5. Now you're ready to serve! You can always top with some cheese & voila!
