Step 1

1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain (reserving 2/3 cups) and return to the pot.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat and saute the mushrooms until soft and brown. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

3. In a seperate large skillet, melt the remaining butter over medium heat. Add minced garlic, cream cheese, and herbs. Simmer cream cheese mixture until well blended. Add the 2/3 cup of boiling pasta water from your noodle pot and mix it in, stirring quickly to smooth out the sauce.
