Nothing excites us more than a Tuscan Butter recipe. They are always the fastest to go from our test kitchen and for good reason. These mushrooms are no exception as they are rich and creamy with pops of brightness from the cherry tomatoes. It’s the perfect easy side dish.

Yields: 4 servings
Prep Time: 0 hours 15 mins
Total Time: 0 hours 35 mins

  • 4 tbsp. butter
  •  2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp. tomato paste
  •  1 lb. baby bella mushrooms, cleaned
  • 1 c. cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3/4 c. heavy cream
  • 1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan
  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes

  • 3 c. spinach
  • Thinly sliced basil, for garnish

      1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add garlic and tomato paste and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add mushrooms and tomatoes and cook until mushrooms are tender and tomatoes are starting to burst, 5 minutes.
      2. Add heavy cream and Parmesan and season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of red pepper flakes, then bring to a simmer. Add spinach and cook until sauce is thickened and spinach is wilted, 5 minutes.
      3. Garnish with basil before serving.
