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.
  • Mushroom & Clove Spaghetti
    Place pasta on plates, garnish with chopped spring onion if desired, serve with sides of your choice, enjoy.
