This pasta is very easy to make and you only need a few ingredients that you usually have at home. I did this pasta dish as our Friday dinner, it was perfect! Burnt butter is just magical.
400g spagetti pasta
150g butter, cut in pieces
4 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
250g brown mushrooms, sliced
A pinch of dry chilli flakes
6 sprigs thyme, fresh
2 tbsp lemon juice
sea salt and black pepper
- Cook the pasta in a pot with a lot of salt and some olive oil. Cook to al dente. Drain and keep some pasta water in the pot, only so the pasta is a bit wet.
- While the pasta is cooking, heat a large frying pan over high heat. Add the butter and garlic and cook for 1 minute or until the butter starts to foam.
- Add the mushroom, chilli flakes, thyme, salt and pepper, and cook for a further 1 minute or until just tender. Lower the heat and add the lemon juice and gently toss around.
- Divide the pasta between plates. Top with the mushroom, burnt butter sauce, thyme, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve!
