Butter Mushroom Noodles

Aren't there days when you don't want to cook but also don't want anything from out ??? Well I almost always have days like this , this recipe came about from a day like that . Like Julia Child's quote ' You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces , just good food from fresh ingredients .' Isn't that true . With just a few ingredients , here is a nice aromatic , flavourful dish for those lazy days .........


350 gms fettuccine
250 gms mushrooms sliced
75 gms butter
2 dried red chilies
5-6 garlic cloves minced
a handful of parsley chopped finely
zest and juice of half a lemon
salt & pepper for seasoning
Parmesan grated


Cook the pasta according to packet instructions in salted boiling water . Reserve a cup of the pasta water .
Now in a saucepan , melt the butter on low heat and add the red chillies just to infuse it .
Discard the red chillies and add in the mushrooms and garlic and saute for a couple of min .
Turn off the heat and add in the zest and juice of the lemon , parsley and the noodles and toss it .
Season with salt and pepper and add in the pasta water if the sauce seems dry .
Grate parmesan on top and enjoy :D.
