Creamy Adobo Mushroom Pasta with Nestle Cream

This was my entry for the Adobo dish with Nestle Cream over at Nestle Cream Facebook page.
But this entry did not make it to the cut off time, imagine the frustration and disappointment? 
I am not blaming myself it's all my internet provider's fault! By the time I was uploading the entry PLDT acted up. The internet connection totally lost, and it was almost 12 noon which was the cut-off time. It got back after less than an hour, although I still uploaded the photo entry but yep Nestle FB admin was so strict they did not included this in the pool of entries. :(
Though it did not make it I am happy to share it to you guys. 



Creamy Adobo Mushroom Pasta with Nestle Cream

Adobo has become one of the signature dishes of Filipino in every kitchen cooking. You can have this dish any time in any season. Every Filipino family here and abroad are accustomed to having Adobo in their table for lunch or dinner. You can use up any meat for an Adobo dish but the most commonly use is pork next would me the chicken or sometimes you can mix the two. Having soy sauce and vinegar as a combination in a dish, the dish will not spoil easily specially when it is cooked properly and simmered for hours. 

A little story during College days, when I come home for a weekend to do laundry and get my school allowance, my Mama prepares a container full of Chicken Pork Adobo that I can bring with me and I can have it for several days and even share it with my board mates. It became my comfort food from home away from home. 

I don't know why Adobo dish can bring you back through time when the kitchen smells so delish because the casserole of Adobo is simmering down for hours until the oil and the soy sauce separates.

Adobo dish it is so easy to do...believe me! Nowadays Adobo dish is being whipped up and added to another dish making it more versatile and being known all over the world.
Here is my simple Adobo pasta dish you can try.
