Creamy Mushroom Linguini Topped with Crispy Mixed Mushrooms

Tender noodles that get tossed in a decadent and creamy truffle sauce with soft buttery mushrooms and then topped with extra crispy mushrooms, give it that nice finishing touch.

Mushrooms are just one of those things that you either hate or you love. If you love truffle, creamy pasta and mushrooms like me then you will fall in love with this creamy sauce that gives those tender noodles a nice little hug. I have a secret cheese that I incorporate into this dish that is now no longer a secret because I just had to share it with you!

Drumroll please…I would like you to meet Truffle Gouda. It is my absolute favorite. I first discovered this at Whole Foods one day when I was making a charcuterie board. It is a great cheese when cut in cubes and enjoyed on its own or with crackers. I’ve had this multiple times and then one day, I had the thought that if you melt this cheese and added to a sauce it would instantly be a game changer, oh was I right.

So, back to the cheese itself. This is one of the best savory and creamiest cheese on this planet (in my opinion). Small little truffle pieces are molded into the Gouda cheese block. When you shred it and melt it into the sauce it is one of the most delicious things you will ever taste.

Now, talk about being versatile. Make this dish whenever you‘re craving creamy pasta, if you are inneed of a weeknight meal, you have a date night lined up or if you’re hosting and having company over. This is one of those dishes that feels fancy without being fancy and I love that it is great for a number of variety occasions.
