Mushroom & Garlic Spaghetti

Pasta can be high in calories but if you use a lot of vegetables and less pasta, it becomes filling without all the extra calories. Any mushrooms would be great for this recipe, or even a combination of a variety of mushrooms. This recipe is simple and ready in under 15 minutes.

  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  2. Heat oil in a medium pan over medium heat.
  3. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until soft, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the sliced mushrooms, salt and pepper and sauté about 2 minutes.
  5. Add white wine and cook another 3 minutes.
  6. Before draining the pasta reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water.
