Copycat Pesto Cavatappi

Directions

  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Add pasta and cook until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add tomatoes and cook until some liquid has been released and the tomatoes are heated through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the wine and cream and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and cook until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add pesto and stir until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add pasta and toss until combined. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with Parmesan cheese.

My husband mad this one day when I was under the weather. It was delicious. Lots of great flavor. Must have been fairly easy to put together or he would not have attempted it. I was very impressed.

The pesto flavor was too strong for my family, so I made it again with half the amount of pesto, and we liked it much better. I also added mushrooms with the tomatoes, and I used fat free half and half instead of the cream. I'll definitely be making this again.

This is lifted from another website where the author mentions throwing in a handful of mushrooms in one of her variations of the dish, others do not mention them....

I see mushrooms in the finished photo. There isn't a mention of mushrooms in the ingredients list. Am I seeing things?
