This very economical dish is full of flavor without breaking your budget.
Here’s how to make it:
To start, saute the mushrooms & shallots in butter and cook until transparent. Add the garlic and cook another minute.
Stir in the cream, lower the heat and simmer gently until thickened (1-2 minutes).
Sprinkle with fresh parsley.
Add the spaghetti and toss with the sauce to coat.
Top with freshly grated cheese and enjoy every last bite!
To add an even deeper mushroom flavor, you can add some dried porcini mushrooms (that have been soaked of course) and add a bit of the liquid you use for soaking them. Since I wanted a quick and simple dish, I went for using only fresh mushrooms.
Add cooked chicken or shrimp for a simple variation.
