Mushroom Pasta | Mushroom Pasta in tomato sauce | Dinner recipes

Two month before, for dinner i had prepared this mushroom pasta with tomato sauce and it was so good.Mushroom and pasta goes really well.To be honest, i won't claim this as any authentic recipe, just use whatever ingredients available in my pantry and the end result turns out very delicious,so thought of sharing this recipe here.My DH is also big fan of this dish,so now once in every weak, i prepare this dish for our dinner or even some time as lunch too.
