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!
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
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.
