Standard

Sometimes just a plain sauce is all that’s need on spaghetti. This has a lot of weight watcher points – 17, but if it’s combined with some 0 point alternatives for lunch or dinner, it’s OK!

Ingredients:

1 lb. dry spaghetti

3 T. butter

1 T. olive oil

1 lb. cremini mushrooms, cleaned and slice

6 cloves garlic

1/2 c. Pecorino cheese, grated

2 T. parsley, chopped

Directions:

Cook the pasta. Reserve 3/4 c. of the pasta water.

Meanwhile, heat 1 T. butter and oil in a large pan. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until browned and tender. Add the garlic and remaining butter and sauté for a little bit longer.

Add the cooked spaghetti to the mushroom pan, the reserved pasta water,  and 1/2 c. cheese. Cook and toss until the water has evaporated. Add the parsley and toss again. Serve immediately and add more cheese if desired.
