I want to have a heart to heart with all the vegetarians who follow my blog and recipes because they have been complaining to me a lot about how I do not make any vegetarian recipes.
Well, here is the reason why I don't. First of all I am not a vegetarian, neither is my brother and basically I pretty much cook for him so I always try to make something that he would like otherwise the food pretty much goes to waste.
I have made a vegetarian spaghetti before which is called Spaghetti Aglio e Olio which I will make again tomorrow hopefully BUT TODAY MY VEGETARIAN FRIENDS I have a gift for you all and that gift is FREAKING DELICIOUS.
Creamy Garlic Herb Mushroom Spaghetti is a very mild but extremely delicious vegetarian spaghetti consisting mushrooms saute in garlic butter and a creamy sauce made from garlic, mixed Italian herbs and cream.
250 grams spaghetti or linguine
4 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoon garlic paste
400 grams mushrooms sliced (2 cans)
1 teaspoon mixed Italian herbs
1½ cup creams
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
Cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packet. There is no rocket science to it and if you cannot do such a simple task you are a dumb nut.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a non stick pan, add garlic paste or minced garlic. Saute until fragrant.
Add mushrooms and cook them for 5-10 minutes until they change color and get softer.
Set the mushrooms aside.
Meanwhile you saute mushrooms you can chop the parsley.
Melt another 2 tablespoon of butter, saute garlic paste or minced garlic until fragrant.
Now add mixed Italian herbs and saute them until fragrant.
Turn the heat on low, add the cream and mix quickly. Turn off the stove so the cream does not get thick.
If it gets thick during this process you can add some water/milk to get it to your desired consistency.
I like THICK things.
Season the sauce with salt and pepper.
Its time to assemble the spaghetti. This sentence made me feel like Nick Fury trying to assemble the avengers.
Mix up the mushrooms with the sauce and add the spaghetti in.
You can also season it with more salt and pepper if you want.
Add in 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
Add in the chopped parsley.
Mix everything together and Creamy Garlic Herb Mushroom Spaghetti is ready.
Dear vegetarians, put your hands together for Creamy Garlic Herb Mushroom Spaghetti.
