Creamy Mushroom with Spagheti Pasta

" Pasta " Italian Cuisine that i am crazy about, after trying most of the places in Bangalore i decided to make my own version in a short and simple way. Cooking them isn't rocket science but all it needs it to be AL DANTE as Italians say ! Basically Italian pastas are more of herbs and added ingredients that gives them a unique flavor that hits our taste buds. You can play around with the different varieties of pastas that are available in the market.

Love for this cuisine has made me try out and get new stuff on my menu.

Here is one of the dish which i experimented which gave flavor and mints to prepare. 
Mushroom being the key ingredient in this dish and i have used the Spaghetti pasta, which looks similar to noodles but taste very different and now a days we get even wheat based Spaghetti.


Spaghetti                           - 2 cups Boiled Al Dante
Amul Fresh Cream            - 1 small pack
Onions                              - 2 chopped finely
Garlic                                - Chopped finely 
Few Basil Leaves
Button Mushroom             - 1 pack Sliced
Olive Oil                           - 2 Tbsp
Mix Herbs - the left over packets that we get from Pizza hut or dominios.
Chille Flakes                     - 1/2 Tsp
Salt to taste


Boil the spaghetti by adding salt and few drops of olive oil in the boiling water. Once Pasta cooks drain them and rinse them in cold water and keep them aside.
Heat Olive Oil in a Pan, Add garlic and once its turns light brown add chopped onions and fry them till they are transparent. 
Add Sliced Mushroom and let them cook for about 10 mints till they leave the water & then dry up.
Add fresh cream, mix herb, chille flakes, salt, basil leaves and few drops of oilve oil and cook them for 5-6 mint.
Add spaghetti to the mixture and cook them for 2-3 mints. 

Plate the Pasta, Garnish with Parmesan Cheese and a basil leave on top
