I‘ll be honest I’m not a big mushroom person myself but shitake mushrooms THIS WAS PRETTY GOOD. Also…. another food blog so soon??? WHAT’S GOING ON. Idk but I like it. MAYBE NEXT TIME we’ll be making like rainbow cake or cheese sticks OR- you know what we’ll think of something good. Back to the point, let’s get cooking:
- Portobello Mushrooms
- we used 3 big portobello mushrooms
- I made a circle with the tip of my pointer finger and my thumb to measure how much pasta I wanted to cook
- you can definitely add more if you wanted more
- 2 bulbs
- cut into lil bits
- like a tablespoon
- Olive Oil
- you tend to drizzle this a lot throughout the recipe
- a few pinches of salt
- Crushed Red Pepper
- put in recipe to your preference!
- Garlic Salt
- half a lemon-two squirts (2 tablespoons ish?)
Step 1: the pasta
Cook your pasta! I add two pinches into the water boiled along with a drizzle of olive oil. Depending on what noodles you are using, the cooking time will be different. It should say on the box of the pasta how long it should take. However, the way that I normally see if my pasta is cooked is once I put it all in the boiling water, I check every few minutes when I mix it, a small bit to see if there’s a white dot still in the center of the noodle. I hope that makes sense. When the pasta is done cooking, drain it, put it on the side (in a bowl or smthg), drizzle some olive oil, mix it around, and let it chill for a bit.
Step 2: the sauce
Cook your garlic with the butter. When the garlic is slightly brown, add your mushrooms in!! You’ll know when your mushrooms are done when you push it down with like your spatula and it’s like soft and juicy. Add some olive oil into the mixture and stir it around. Then, add your spices! This will be to your preference depending on how spicy you want it to be. I added like 5 sprinkles of the onion and garlic salt and then like 3 sprinkles of the crushed red pepper.
Step 3: combine and cheese it up
Put the mushroom sauce into the pasta and heat it together for like 3 minutes as you add cheeeesseee!! cheese. Cheese. CHEESE. CHHHHHEEEEESE!!! Mix it in more with your lemon and there you have it!!
Step 4: serve it
Put your pasta on your bowl. Sprinkle it with your spices. Add a small layer of cheese. And, serve! Enjoy!!!! ❤
