1 envelope (0.9 ounce) garlic-mushroom recipe soup mix

2 cups water

1 box (1 pound) penne pasta

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 small sweet red pepper, sliced

1 1/2 pounds assorted pre-sliced mushrooms

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley

1/4 cup heavy cream


  1. Whisk together soup mix and water in medium-size bowl; set aside.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet. Add sweet pepper and mushrooms; saute until partially tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in soup mixture. Increase heat to medium-high; cook, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 8 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan, the parsley and the heavy cream; cook another 1 minute or until heated through.
  4. Drain the pasta well; transfer the pasta to a large serving bowl. Add mushroom sauce and the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan; toss to mix well. Serve the pasta immediately.
