Fun facts about portobello mushrooms:

  • Portobellos — like most mushrooms — contain a high amount of glutamic acid, which is the natural source of monosodium glutamate. That means lots of umami.
  • Cremini mushrooms are the “baby” immature versions of portobellos. They can grow from button size to 6-inches across in less than a week!
  • The gills and stems of portobello mushrooms are completely edible. If they’re not super-fresh, the gills will turn black and mushy. You can easily scoop them out with a spoon before cooking.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup thinly sliced shallot or red onion, about 1 large or 2 medium
  • kosher salt
  • 10 ounces (275 g) white button mushrooms, cut into chunky pieces
  • 8 ounces (225 g) portobello mushroom caps, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red chili
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces (225 g) dried pappardelle or fettuccine noodles, or 1 pound fresh pasta
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) rosé or dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons (45 g) butter
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 ounces (150 g) baby spinach leaves

Instructions 

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Place a large (12-inch) pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and shallots to the pan along with ½ teaspoon kosher salt. Cook until the shallots are softened, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms to the pan in one layer. Cook undisturbed for 5 minutes, then sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and stir them around with the shallots. Stir in the garlic, chili and black pepper and continue cooking 5 more minutes, or until they are softened and have released their juices.
  • While the mushrooms cook, add the pasta to the boiling water and cook according to package directions. Note that fresh pasta will usually be done in 2-4 minutes and dried pasta in 10-12 minutes. Drain.
  • Raise the heat under the mushrooms to medium-high and pour in the wine. Let it bubble and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the butter until it melts. Remove the pan from the heat and add ¼ cup cheese and spinach to the pan. Stir until the leaves are wilted.
  • Add the cooked pasta to the pan and toss gently with the sauce. Serve in bowls with additional cheese sprinkled over the pasta. Pour a glass of wine and enjoy!

Karen’s Notes and Tips

  • If you’re not using kosher salt, reduce the salt amount by half.
  • Instead of spinach, substitute an equal amount of tender baby kale, chard or other hearty greens, torn into bite-size pieces.
  • To make a hearty non-vegetarian meal, serve the pasta with a simple grilled chicken breast or other meat.
  • Leftovers will keep for 3 days in the fridge. You may want to add some stock and more olive oil when reheating because the pasta will absorb the sauce as it cools.

    Delicious. So simple. I used red onion because that’s what I had. Also didn’t have spinach, so will try this with shallots and spinach next time. I cut everything up, which is minimal, and started the pasta. By the time everything was done in the pan, the pasta was done. Super easy. I used kosher salt and I would probably reduce it a bit even though I only used 1 tsp total, it was a tad salty. Overall 5*. Will make again!
