2. Saute the Mushrooms 

While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are golden brown and tender, about 5-7 minutes.

3. Add Garlic 

Add the minced garlic to the skillet with the mushrooms and sauté for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant, being careful not to burn the garlic.

4. Add Cream 

Pour the heavy cream into the skillet with the mushrooms and garlic. Stir well to combine and bring the mixture to a simmer. Allow it to simmer gently for about 2-3 minutes until the sauce slightly thickens.

6. Combine Pasta and Sauce 

Add the cooked pasta to the skillet with the creamy mushroom sauce. Toss well to coat the pasta evenly with the sauce.

7. Add Parmesan 

Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the pasta and sauce mixture. Stir again to incorporate the cheese into the sauce, allowing it to melt and further thicken the sauce.

8. Serve 

Once the cheese has melted and the sauce has reached your desired consistency, remove the skillet from heat. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired, and serve the creamy mushroom pasta immediately.
