WWEW: Gouda & Mushroom Pasta

Happy Wednesday! Though we aren't doing our link party anymore, we still want to share recipes with you guys :) Also, I find myself referring back to recipe posts for ideas! I whipped up this recipe the other day on a whim and really liked the way it turned out. You could easily beef it up to make a complete meal, but I just used it as a side dish. 
-4 Tbs butter
-2 Tbs flour
-1 1/2 to 2 cups milk
-1 cup shredded gouda cheese
-12 oz sliced mushrooms
-10 oz pasta

1. Bring medium pot of water to a boil, add noodles and cook to al dente.
2. While noodles are boiling, melt 2 Tbs butter in large skillet. Once melted, add flour and stir until mixed well. Then add milk and stir well. Then add the cheese and mix again. Make sure everything is well incorporated. Add more milk if it's too thick.
3. While you're working on the sauce, sauté your mushrooms with the other 2 Tbs butter. Once they're done, add them to the cheese sauce.
4. Add your al dente noodles to the sauce and stir. Grate some fresh gouda on top before serving!

We ate this with simple chicken breast and asparagus. It was a super yummy meal! My husband sat down to dinner and said "did you just whip this up?!" I replied, "yep!" It definitely looks and tastes a lot more fancy than it is :)

I hope you guys are having great day! We will talk to you soon.
