I was out running errands today when I got a sudden and intense craving for mushroom pasta. All I could think about was buttery noodles with caramelized garlicky mushrooms, and lots of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, so I did what any food blogger would do, I drove home and made myself one delicious lunch that completely satisfied my craving. I love my job!

How to Make Spaghetti with Garlicky Mushrooms and Parmesan

Cook the spaghetti in salted boiling water, per instructions. Drain the pasta making sure to keep 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water.

While the pasta is cooking, heat the butter in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the mushroom slices and crushed red pepper flakes then toss quickly to coat them completely in the butter. Let the mushrooms cook undisturbed for 2 minutes. Flip them over and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the shallots and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Add the drained spaghetti to the mushrooms and a bit of the pasta water; toss to coat evenly. Season well with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Serve with lots of freshly grated Parmesan and fresh parsley. Enjoy.

  1. I love when a craving hits and you immediately go home and satiate it! This looks seriously delicious!

  2. Leave out the mushrooms, and it’s exactly the kind of lunch or side dish I cook! Full disclosure, I would saute up the mushrooms for my men who love them, but in a separate pot. Have you tried the high protein pasta? It’s twice as expensive as regular, but it’s really delicious.

  3. I love that you just followed your cravings and they led you straight to this pasta!
