I have signed up for this month’s Taste & Create event after a long time and I’m paired with Min @ The Bad Girl’s Kitchen. There are a ton of dessert recipes that I looked awesome and I really wanted to try them from her blog, but it’s just me and my 5 year old at home this week, so didn’t feel like making a whole batch of anything. 

When I saw this penne pasta with chipotle cream sauce recipe, I knew I had to make it. It sounded delicious and I had all the ingredients at home. I made very few minor changes like using rotelle pasta instead of penne and I used frozen wild mushrooms instead of fresh. I reduced the amount of chipotle sauce since I’m not a big fan of smoky stuff.
