Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Pasta

I think all of us can agree that 2020 hasn’t quite panned out the way we expected when we woke on 1 January but despite the incredible hardships that Lockdown has brought, I do still try find the silver linings. One thing I have found myself doing a lot of (besides the never ending cleaning) is cooking and coming up with something different every night of the week is no easy feat. So when Kirsten from the Bird and the Beard challenged me to create my own #RationFriendly Lockdown recipe using pantry staples along with Fair Cape Dairies, I was all for it! We eat a lot of pasta in our house and it is most definitely one of my weaknesses and there is nothing more comforting than a steaming bowl of delicious pasta on a cold, wintry night. I found this Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Pasta recipe that my mom used to make and it’s one I haven’t made in years but is absolutely delicious, indulgent and super simple to make – and it uses a handful of ingredients that I usually always have on hand.


  • 1 tin Mushroom soup
  • 1 packet Pasta of choice
  • 1 punnet Mushrooms
  • 1 Onion
  • Crushed garlic to taste
  • 3 heaped tbsp Fair Cape Full Cream Plain Yoghurt
  • Salt, pepper and herbs of your choice (I use rosemary and origanum)


  • Fry onions and mushrooms until soft and slightly caramelized.
  • Add mushroom soup, salt, pepper and herbs – stir to combine.
  • Cook pasta according to packet instructions.
  • Stir in Fair Cape Full Cream Yoghurt.
  • Drain pasta and combine with sauce and serve!
  • Garnish with parmesan or other hard cheese.


You’ll see I also added baby marrows – I don’t usually add any other veg but these were in the fridge and needed to be used and turned out to be a great addition.
I’ve challenged my friend, Jade from Eat by Jade to come up with her #RationFriendly recipe using pantry staples (and Fair Cape Dairies of course) Be sure to keep an eye on her Instagram for her recipe!
If you give this one a try, be sure to tag me on social media if you do – I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Happy cooking.
