- 250g Donna Pastaia Spinach Fettuccine
- 200g mushrooms, sliced
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Cook the Spinach Fettuccine: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the Spinach Fettuccine and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving a small cup of the pasta water.
Sauté the Mushrooms: In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté until they turn golden brown and release their moisture, usually about 5-6 minutes.
Add the Garlic and Create the Sauce: Add the minced garlic to the skillet with the mushrooms and sauté for an additional minute until fragrant. Pour in the heavy cream, stirring continuously. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer.
Incorporate the Cheese: Gradually add the grated Parmesan cheese to the skillet, stirring constantly until the cheese has melted and the sauce has thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Combine the Pasta and Sauce: Add the cooked Spinach Fettuccine to the skillet with the mushroom garlic cheese sauce. Toss gently to coat the pasta evenly with the luscious sauce. If needed, add a splash of the reserved pasta water to achieve your desired consistency.
Serve and Plate: Transfer the creamy Spinach Fettuccine to serving plates or bowls. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a pop of colour and an herbaceous aroma.
Serving and Plating Suggestions:
- Enhance the dish with additional toppings like sautéed garlic, shaved truffle mushrooms, roasted cherry tomatoes, crispy bacon or sliced sausages.
- Pair this creamy pasta with a side of garlic bread or a fresh garden salad for a complete meal.
- Complement the richness of the dish with a crisp white wine such as Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc.
