It’s time to embrace the next few months and remember that winter can be just as wonderful (and delicious) as summer. The best days (no matter the season) are the simplest. Curling up during those chilly months with a creamy, rich casserole feels just as decadent as spending a gorgeous day in the sun. We need to celebrate the seasons – ALL OF THEM. So cozy-up by the fire with this easy and tasty casserole!

Heat Olive Oil in a 10.5 inch cast iron pan to medium heat. Add Onion & Garlic and sauté until soft. Add Portabella mushrooms and season with Salt & Pepper. Cook down until the Portabellas are about half their size (about ten min).

Raise heat to medium-high and add White Wine and Chicken Stock. Let reduce for 2-3 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium. Add Goat Cheese to Portabella mixture – stir until combined.
Add Stonyfield Organic Low Fat Plain Yogurt, Dried Italian Seasoning, Fresh Herbs, Parmesan Cheese, Red Pepper Flakes, Lemon Zest, and Salt and Pepper – to taste. Add cooked Pasta – stir until combined and heated through.
