  • 160 Grams Fettuccine or Linguine
  • 30 Grams Unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 300 Grams Mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 Cloves Chopped Garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 Cups Vegetable Broth
  • 3/4 Cup Cream (heavy / thickened)
  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan (finely grated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • Extra Parmesan (for serving)
  • Parsley  (roughly chopped - optional)


  1. Cook pasta in salted water for 1 minute less than time per packet. Just before draining, scoop out 1 cup cooking water, then drain.
  2. Melt butter and heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring regularly. When they start to sweat, add a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. When pretty golden (about 4 - 5 minutes), add garlic and cook until garlic is golden and mushroom is golden.
  4. Add veg broth (it will be steamy!!), stir, scraping the bottom of the skillet.
  5. Add cream, Parmesan, salt and pepper. Stir to dissolve Parmesan and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring regularly.
  6. Transfer pasta into sauce, toss for 1 - 2 minutes until sauce thickens and coats pasta. If sauce gets too thick, add a splash of reserved pasta cooking water.
  7. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately with extra Parmesan!
