Creamy mushroom and spinach pasta


  • 12 ounces (340g) of pasta (such as fettuccine, linguine, or penne)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 pound (450g) of mushrooms, sliced (such as cremini or button mushrooms)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 5 cups (about 150g) of fresh spinach leaves
Creamy Sauce:
  • 1 cup (240ml) of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup (50g) of grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional: Red pepper flakes, for added spice
  • Fresh parsley or basil, chopped, for garnis


  1. Cook the Pasta: Begin by bringing a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Add the pasta and cook it according to the instructions on the package until it reaches al dente texture, usually about 8-10 minutes. Once done, carefully drain the pasta using a colander and set it aside.
  2. Sauté the Mushrooms and Garlic: In a large skillet or frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and sauté for about 5-7 minutes until they release their juices and start to brown. Add the minced garlic to the skillet and sauté for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Add the Spinach: Add the fresh spinach leaves to the skillet with the mushrooms and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the spinach wilts and reduces in volume.
  4. Prepare the Creamy Sauce: Pour the heavy cream into the skillet with the mushrooms and spinach. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until it melts and the sauce becomes creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add red pepper flakes if desired for added spice.
  5. Combine the Pasta and Sauce: Add the cooked pasta to the skillet with the creamy mushroom and spinach sauce. Toss everything together until the pasta is evenly coated in the sauce.
  6. Serve: Once everything is heated through, remove the skillet from the heat. Serve the creamy mushroom and spinach pasta hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley or basil if desired.
