Simple mushroom and garlic pasta

This is a super simple recipe. I used whatever I could find in my store cupboard and voila!

Serves 1-2


200 gm tagliatelle or spaghetti
200 gm mushroom
6 cloves of garlic - chopped finely.
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp butter
1 chicken stock cube (optional or you could use veg stock cube)
1/2 cup water
1 tsp cornflour
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
salt and pepper to taste


Bring a large pan of water, with some salt to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as per the instructions on the packet.

Keep around 1/4 cup of the pasta water aside and drain the pasta. Toss the drained pasta with some olive oil.

In 1/2 cup of water, dissolve the stock cube. Add the cornflour and mix well.

Meanwhile in another frying pan, add oil and butter. When the butter melts add in the garlic and cook for a minute. Toss in the mushrooms and cook for around 5 mins.

Add the water with cornflour and stock cube as well as the pasta water (as required. Add all of it if you want some sauce). Add in the drained pasta and toss gently.

Add the chilli flakes, season with salt and pepper and garnish with some chopped parsley or coriander.
