Mushroom, Thyme and Sun Dried Tomato Pasta

Here you have another one of our favorite pastas. Although this one has the Mascarpone cheese, which tends to be quite fattening after dividing the recipe to 5, 6 servings it is all not that bad.

This recipe it is also very simple and fast to put together. It will be done literally in 20-25 minutes. The powdered thyme gives this dish a unique flavor so I highly recommend it, don’t omit it.

On any event if you try this recipe you will not be disappointed.
