Rockmom Dinner Chronicles

My Trofie Pasta w/ mushrooms in a red wine cream sauce was a hearty hit with my kids! It’s like Gnocchi …

Here’s a recipe from Tyler Florence and the Food Network !

Red Wine and Wild Mushroom Sauce

Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence

  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Cook Time: 15 min
  • Level: Easy
  • Serves: 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 2 pounds assorted mushrooms, such as crimini, oyster, shiitake, chanterelle, or white, trimmed and sliced
  • Leaves from 2 fresh thyme sprigs
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 1/4 cup reserved beef broth (drippings from roast) or low-sodium canned broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives


Place a clean skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and a 2-count drizzle of oil. When the butter starts to foam, add the shallots and saute for 2 minutes to soften. Add the mushrooms and thyme; season with salt and pepper. Stir everything together for a few minutes. Add the red wine, stirring to scrape up any stuck bits; then cook and stir to evaporate the alcohol. When the wine is almost all gone, add the reserved beef juices. Let the liquid cook down and then take it off the heat. Stir in the cream and chives, and season with salt and pepper.
