  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 Ounces fettuccine
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 Ounces mixed mushrooms, such as cremini, shiitake, pom pom, yellow oyster, and enoki, sliced, torn, or chopped
  • 2 small cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 Teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 Cup grated Parmesan, plus more for serving


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and add the fettuccine.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When it shimmers, add the heartier mushrooms (such as the cremini and shiitake) and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes, then stir once and cook for 3 more minutes.

Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute, then add the remaining mushrooms and cook for 30 more seconds. Add the lemon juice and thyme and reduce the heat to very low (you don’t want those delicate mushrooms to overcook).

The pasta should be just about ready. Before draining, reserve 1 cup of the starchy cooking water. Once drained, add the pasta to the skillet and top with the Parmesan. Stir and add enough reserved cooking water to fully moisten the pan. Increase the heat to medium and cook until the dish takes on a saucy consistency, for 1-2 more minutes. Serve topped with more Parmesan.

Mushroom Lovers Pasta

This Mushroom Lovers Pasta recipe is tossed with the most heavenly balsamic butter sauce, a generous handful of Parmesan, and whatever kinds of mushrooms you love most.

Have any fun plans for Valentine’s this year?

I’m going to be living vicariously through all of you Americans on Instagram tomorrow, because Valentine’s Day isn’t really celebrated here in Barcelona. Instead, they have Sant Jordi Day — a holiday here in April when everyone gives each other books and roses and celebrates the story of a princess who was rescued from being eaten by a dragon, no less! So we have that to look forward to. (Can’t wait!)

But otherwise, tomorrow will probably just be a regular day here in Spain. I’ve got work, a haircut, and Spanish class on the agenda. Then we’ll probably settle in for a low-key date night here at home afterwards with some Netflix. And, of course, pasta and chocolate. Because no Valentine’s is complete in my book without some kind of indulgent pasta and chocolate for dessert. ♡ ♡ ♡

So to that end, I’m planning to make another round of these Dreamy Chocolate Lava Cakes and some kind of big green salad. And then for our main course, my husband has requested this pasta. We’ve been making various versions of it this past year, especially since good mushrooms are in such abundance here in Spain. And oh my goodness, it hits the spot every time.

I love it because we use twice the amount of mushrooms as pasta in the dish, which adds tons of flavor and makes it nice and hearty. (Feel free to use whatever kinds of mushrooms you love most.) But this savory sauce — simmered with rosemary, white wine, garlic, balsamic, veggie stock, crushed red pepper flakes — is absolutely divine. It’s total vegetarian comfort food. And if you’re looking for a showstopper of a dish this Valentine’s Day, we can’t recommend it enough.

So gather up all of your favorite kinds of mushrooms, and let’s make some pasta!

How to make wild mushroom pasta

The best thing about cooking this simple dish is that it comes together in less than 30 minutes.

For an intimate meal, be sure to light some candles, set the table with pretty napkins and flatware, and get a few pasta bowls ready.

  • First, prep your mushrooms by slicing into thick slices and finely chopping a shallot
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add some salt — you want the water to taste salty like the sea, because you’ll be adding a little bit to the mushrooms in the pan to make the sauce.
  • Next, heat olive oil in a large sauté pan (I recommend a 12-inch size), adding the shallots and then the mushrooms. When they’re softened, stir in white wine and let it bubble until reduced by half
  • Stir in the aromatic garlic and thyme and cook just until they release their fragrance.
  • To finish the sauce, add the pasta water and the butter until you have a saucy texture. Add the drained fettuccine, divide into bowls and top with grated Parmesan cheese
  • Serve the pasta warm and enjoy right away!

Whether enjoyed as a main dish or a side or an appetizer, mushrooms bring rich umami and other savory flavors to every recipe they star in. Our collection here includes not-to-be missed soups like a vegetarian take on French Onion and a dairy-free (but incredibly creamy) mushroom soup with coconut milk and miso. There are irresistible appetizers like mushroom pierogi and a super easy and quick-to-make Taleggio-and-Roasted Mushroom Dip. Entrées include meat-free dishes like Mushroom-Eggplant Lasagna and meaty meals like portobello mushrooms stuffed with sweet sausage because truly, mushrooms play well with so many ingredients. We consider them culinary chameleons.

Almost all mushrooms available at supermarkets are cultivated, not wild, and are available year-round. The most common varieties of cultivated mushroom are mild-tasting white button, flavorful cremini, earthy portobello, savory shiitake, and delicate oyster. These are the mushrooms that the recipes you'll find in the slides ahead are built on, but there are a few dishes that star the more expensive and harder to find chanterelles and porcini.

When you're buying mushrooms, look for firm, smooth, and dry caps. Avoid damp, pitted, or dried-out mushrooms. And when you get home from the market, refrigerate loose mushrooms (unrinsed) in a paper bag. If you purchased containers of mushrooms, store them in the refrigerator in their original packaging. Use mushrooms within a few days of purchase.

Also, it's important to know that it's a myth that you shouldn't wash mushrooms when prepping them. Because they are absorbent, they shouldn't be soaked, but quickly submerging them whole in a bowl of cold water cleans them more effectively than wiping them with a vegetable brush or damp paper towel. Swish the mushrooms their grit will drop to the bottom of the bowl. Lift them out, lay them on a clean kitchen towel, and blot to remove excess moisture. Then you're ready to get cooking with our best mushroom recipes!
