Mushroom noodles with spinach and creme fraiche on plate

Mushroom spaghetti with spinach and crème fraîche

First time ever I made this creamy mushroom spaghetti recipe when first lockdown began and all of a sudden we needed solutions for quick and easy but also tasty and wholesome lunch time meals. I copied it from a Jamie Oliver’s recipe in all honesty but made it my own in the multiple attempts after the first one. You guessed it right, it’s now one of our favourites.

  • 150g gluten free spaghetti (I use Juvela brand ones)

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

  • 200g closed cup mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 heaped tablespoons half-fat crème fraîche

  • 70g of frozen and thawed spinach (or fresh spinach wilted on a dry hot pan)

  • 0.5 tbsp of olive oil

  • pinch of fine sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp of nutmeg

  • ground black pepper

  • Optional ingredients
  • 25g finely grated parmesan cheese or 50g grated mild cheddar cheese


  • Cook the spaghetti as per the instructions, drain but save half a cup of the water.
  • Cook the garlic in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat with the olive oil, followed one minute later by the mushrooms.
  • Season with sea salt and black pepper, and cook for six minutes, or until golden, tossing regularly.
  • Add the spinach and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Toss the drained pasta into the mushroom pan with the reserved cooking water.
  • Add the nutmeg and cheese, stir in the crème fraîche and serve. Or leave out the cheese entirely for a healthier option.
