This black pasta (opens in new tab) with mushrooms is a chic dish that is simply delicious! We’ve paired black squid ink spaghetti with a rich mushroom (opens in new tab) sauce that is so easy to make. It’s delightfully quick to whip up and looks so striking. Black pasta is available from some supermarkets, but we actually found ours in our local fishmonger! Black pasta with mushrooms is perfect for a special dinner for two and a great option if you are cooking for vegetarians. If you’re feeling adventurous you could even forage the mushrooms which are in season in autumn, but make sure you use a guide to double check to avoid any dangerous ones. This autumnal black pasta with mushrooms is a simple pasta dish that is so impressive, but hardly takes any work.
- Cook the pasta according to package instructions, once cooked drain and set aside.
- While the pasta is cooking melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. Sauté the mushrooms in the butter for 2mins, then add the thyme and continue to cook for a couple more minutes. Next add the cream and allow the sauce to reduce for a few minutes, then stir in the stock and then remove the pan from the heat.
- Add the drained pasta to the frying pan and season well. Add the lemon juice and zest, and mix well so that the pasta is evenly coated in lovely mushroom sauce. Serve immediately topped with grated Parmesan.
