Mushroom & Clove Spaghetti

Lee Thayer


I love mushrooms and spaghetti, so this sounds like a win win. I made this on 2 Feb 2019, and I was pleasantly surprised, this is very delicious, Even my wife liked this dish. This is not like a typical spaghetti with a tomato sauce, this is not drenched in sauce. The clove is a subtle flavor but very nice.

How to Make Mushroom & Clove Spaghetti


  1. Heat a pot of salted water and bring to a boil, add the pasta and cook until tender. Drain and run under cold water. Set aside.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, go ahead and start cooking the rest. Melt the butter in a large non stick pan on low heat, when completely melted, whisk in the flour until mixed together, then add the onion, cloves (I used ground as I could not find my whole cloves), coriander, black pepper, and garlic. (I was out of red onion so just used a brown onion.)
  3. Stir until the onion is soft and garlic is fragrant. The kitchen will have a wonderful aroma.
  4. Add the mushrooms and tomato paste. ( I got snap happy with the camera and took this before adding the tomato paste.)
  5. Saute for 4-5 minutes or until the mushrooms are nice and tender. You will not get a lot of liquid from this, this a dry sauce.
  6. Add the spaghetti and soy sauce, and mix with the mushroom mixture. Saute for 1-2 minutes to heat the pasta through.
  7. Place pasta on plates, garnish with chopped spring onion if desired, serve with sides of your choice, enjoy.
