I love mushroom barley soup and I was originally making one that took about 3 hours to cook. This one is so simple and easy and takes a third of the time. If you like mushroom barley soup, you will really like this. It’s perfect for a cold winter night.
Orzo pasta and mushrooms are cooked with white wine in a rich butter sauce.
Cooked shrimp and sliced fresh mushrooms are bathed in an opulent sauce of sauteed garlic, rich cream cheese, fresh parsley and a dash of basil. Toss with hot linguini and serve as an elegant appetizer or main dish.
