Meatless Monday: Roast Mushroom fettuccine with cream and black pepper

I'm sorry.

Really, I am.

But this mushroom fettuccine was SO good, we ate it before we could photograph it. One bite and we were in love.

Ok, to be fair, there were a few strands left over in the frying pan and I was literally taking a photo while my husband was stealing bits. It's that addictive.

 I'm sorry.

Anyway, why dontcha make it yourself? Understand firsthand the deliciousness. You'll forgive us.

Serves 4.

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 kilo swiss brown mushrooms, sliced thick
2-3 tablespoons butter, depends on how psycho you are
pinch of fresh thyme
1/4 cup stock
300ml cream
handful grated parmesan
salt and cracked black pepper
Fresh fettuccine, cooked according to packet directions.


1. Preheat oven to 200C and spread the mushrooms out on an oiled tray.

2. Bake mushrooms 15-20 minutes until brown and starting to release their juices.

3. Heat butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute the garlic 1 minute until soft.

4. Add mushrooms and thyme and cook 5 minutes.

5. Add stock and cream and turn heat to high.

6. Boil sauce until thickened and reduced slightly. Add parmesan.

7. Check for seasoning and serve with plenty of extra parmesan and cracked black pepper.

8. Forgive me.

    I used to hate mushrooms. I started trying them in dishes and now I'm finding I'm really liking them! Yesterday I ate a mushroom and cream side dish and a couple of weeks ago I made a very similar dish to yours. Yum!!

  4. I kinda want to lick the screen.

    I kinda need to clean it now.

  5. My husband would love this dish! I am not keen on mushies, but they are his fave. I will make this for him next week! :-) xoxo

  6. Great pictures...very cute.
    I love a  Meatless Monday pasta dish. On my blog today we posted  a Spinach Pasta and Asparagus Pesto

  7. This post made me laugh! When something tastes so good that you don't have time to get the camera out, you know it's a winner and there's no shame it that. Thanks for sharing, I think I'll be making this given the stellar recommendation :)

  8. And I'll do it again, I'm sure!

  9. I cannot believe I ever hated mushrooms. Damn they're sooo good.

  10. Didn't you get one of those Viva things at the conference? that'll do!

  11. Even if you pick the mushrooms out, the sauce is still amazing! And then husband gets all your leftover delicious roasted mushrooms (are you crazy?!) and you BOTH win!

  12. Such a rare event in this house! Everybody knows not to move a muscle until photos have been taken. Rule-breaker!

  13. I have done the eat before taking photos thing too, so loved that you took the pic anyway! I'd love to join in on Meatless Monday because it's so much fun, but alas, have been eating to much meat. Soon, surely?

  14. stoooop! just one day a weeeeek! you can do it!

  15.  I should, shouldn't I? haha. My cooking has also been very lazy, but I'm sure the lure of something sweet will get me back there. I can feel a dessert session coming on very soon;)

  16. I wish I was dessert-inspired. I never am!

  17. Mushrooms = a clean plate at my place, so I thought the pic was brilliant.

  18. Haha I bet they are! I just couldn't help myself :)

  19. Hello, I was so inspired by this recipe I cooked a variation of it myself, and blogged about it too. I added lemon zest, spinach and capsicum. So yummy! Thank you for the inspiration. 

  20. Oh what an interesting combination! I love seeing how people put their own twists on things. Yum!
