Spicy mushroom spaghetti

Spicy mushroom spaghetti

This is my version of a recipe first published by BBC Good Food. To be honest, I was worried my carnivore Husband would be poking around his plate looking for some meat, but even he thought this was a surprisingly tasty supper.


Ingredients serves 2

2 tbsp olive oil

250g pack chestnut mushrooms, peeled and thickly sliced

Garlic clove, thinly sliced

Small bunch parsley

Couple large sprigs Greek basil, snipped

Stick of celery, finely sliced

Large shallot, diced

400g tin tomatoes

Half fresh red chilli

150g spaghetti

How to prepare/serve

Boil the spaghetti according to pack instructions.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook mushrooms on high-ish heat for 2 -3 mins until golden.

Add the garlic, celery, chilli and onion and fry for another 4 mins.

Stir in the tomatoes, season and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 mins.

Share out the pasta between two warmed bowls or plates and ladle on the sauce. Sprinkle on the snipped basil and enjoy.
