A rich and super tasty spaghetti dish using a good mix of mushrooms and a nice helping of creme fraiche


  • 250grams of dried spaghetti
  • 200grams of Oyster and Shitake mushroom (a mix)
  • 15grams of dried porcini mushroom
  • 100grams creme fraiche
  • Handful of parsley
  • Parmesan
  • 1 heaped tsp marmite
  • Large knob of butter
  • 📖Method

  • Place your dehydrated mushrooms in a small container and cover them in boiling water. Use just enough water to cover them, you want the excess water to be as concentrated as possible. They take about 20-30minutes to soften.
  • In a large pan heat salted water and add the dried spaghetti once boiling.
  • Tear the mushrooms into bite-size pieces.
  • Heat an empty dry pan, once hot, add your mushrooms and cook for around 5 minutes until they start to wilt down.
  • Remove the now re-hydrated mushrooms, make sure to save the water, and add them to the pan. Cook together for a couple minutes.
  • Add a large knob of butter and melt through the mushrooms.
  • Add the tsp of marmite and mix through.
  • Pour in the stock leftover from the dried mushrooms.
  • Cook until you have a thick, rich consistency.
  • Turn the pan down and add the creme fraiche with a pinch of salt and a generous amount of black pepper.
  • Cook together for a couple minutes before adding your cooked spaghetti with a little splash of the pasta water.
  • Mix through the roughly chopped parsley and transfer to plates.
  • Top with a fresh grating of parmesan and serve!
