We've added sautéed mushrooms to the classic – and very simple – spaghetti with garlic and oil, but the dish can still be made in no time at all. Regular white mushrooms are excellent here; portobellos or wild mushrooms would be great, too.
1/2 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes (optional)
2/3 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound spaghettini
3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
Spaghettini with Mushrooms, Garlic, and Oil Recipe at
In a medium frying pan, heat the olive oil over moderately low heat. Add the garlic and the red-pepper flakes and cook, stirring, until the garlic softens, about 1 minute. Add the sliced mushrooms and the salt and cook until the mushrooms exude liquid, the liquid evaporates, and the mushrooms begin to brown, about 5 minutes.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the spaghettini until just done, about 9 minutes. Drain and toss with the mushroom mixture, the parsley, and the pepper.

Eliminate the mushrooms and reduce the oil to 7 tablespoons. Just cook the garlic and red-pepper flakes for a minute and toss with the remaining ingredients.
