  • 400 g chestnut mushrooms sub with cremini mushrooms/ closed cup/ closed button mushrooms.
  • 400 g pasta linguine or any pasta of choice
  • 2 large garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil: You can substitute with any other flavourless oil of choice
  • cup chicken broth This recipe uses wine but I am using chicken broth instead. Use both if you have them
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • Pasta water reserve some for use if need be


  • Prep the ingredients: Clean the mushrooms and slice them thinly into about ½ cm. Mince the garlic and set aside
  • Cook pasta al dente in salted water according to the packet. Whilst you are waiting on the pasta, move on to the next bit
  • Place a skillet over medium heat, add the butter and olive oil and heat till hot. Carefully add the sliced mushrooms in a single layer and sauté until golden (Work in batches if need be for crispy mushroom and add more butter or oil to the pan if the mushrooms have sucked them all up) transfer the mushrooms to a plate.
  • Add minced garlic to the skillet and stir quickly to combine so it doesn’t burn then add the heavy cream (substitute for single cream), sauteed mushrooms, parmesan, black pepper, chicken broth and stir to combine. simmer for another 3 minutes till it thickens a bit.
  • Drain the pasta, reserving some pasta water to use for later if need be. Toss the pasta in the sauce until it is well coated. Check for salt and seasoning and adjust to taste. Garnish with chopped parsley and grated parmesan and serve hot.


How to clean mushrooms

This recipe is great when the mushrooms are not soggy. Here is a quick overview of how to clean mushrooms properly.
The best way to properly clean closed button mushroom and make it dirt free is to wipe it clean with a damp kitchen towel. You could also wash them quickly under cold water and pat them dry or brush them clean with a mushroom brush, but I find wiping with a damp towel the best way and most efficient for crispy mushrooms.
  • Use white wine instead of chicken broth
  • Add pasta water to thin out the pan sauce if need be
