Mushroom and Garlic Pasta

I love mushrooms and I've been trying to find a good mushroom pasta recipe for a while. Today, I experimented a little and it turned out pretty good. It is super simple to cook, very little ingredients and it is packed with flavor. 


1 package of spaghetti
1 large package of mushrooms (whichever kind you like), chopped
6 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 stick of butter
3 tbsp of olive oil
1 cup of fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbsp of dried basil
1 tsp chili flakes
1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste


1. Cook the spaghetti until al dente. I like to wait until boiling point, throw in a tbsp of salt and then put the spaghetti in. It cooks faster and more easily. Chop the mushrooms. I would say the more mushrooms the better because I like mushrooms a lot. But it's totally up to you.

I actually added more later.

2. In a separate pan, heat half a stick of butter (about 4 tbsp).

3. As the butter melts, add the chopped mushrooms and the minced garlic. Add salt, pepper and dried basil.

5. Cook until the mushrooms turn brown and soft and let out the juices.

6. Now add the remaining butter, olive oil, chili flakes and grated Parmesan cheese. Taste check and make sure there is enough salt. Once you're satisfied with the sauce, add fresh, chopped parsley.

7. Now add this sauce to your cooked spaghetti and mix well. And that's it!

Garnish with some more parsley to make it look pretty. Enjoy it with garlic bread. 

I made the garlic bread at home. I took regular old buttermilk white bread, spread butter, minced garlic and chopped parsley, with a pinch of salt and chili flakes on it. I baked it for about 10 minutes on 425 degrees Fahrenheit (preheat first). You could even put some mozzarella cheese over it to make it cheesy garlic bread! 

Try it! I'm sure you'll love it.
