Mushroom Tagliatelle

I love making mushroom tagliatelle! It’s a delicious and comforting dish that’s perfect for a cozy night in. The earthy flavor of the mushrooms combined with the silky pasta is just divine. Let me take you through the process of making this delightful meal.


  • Tagliatelle pasta
  • Assorted mushrooms (such as cremini, shiitake, and oyster)
  • Butter
  • Garlic
  • Shallots
  • Thyme
  • Heavy cream
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper


First, I start by cooking the tagliatelle pasta in a pot of boiling salted water until it’s al dente. While the pasta is cooking, I sauté a mixture of sliced mushrooms in butter until they’re golden brown and caramelized. I also add minced garlic, shallots, and thyme to the pan to build layers of flavor.


Next, I pour in some heavy cream and let it simmer with the mushrooms until it thickens slightly. The cream adds a luscious richness to the sauce that coats the tagliatelle beautifully. I finish the sauce off with a generous amount of grated Parmesan cheese, which adds a salty umami kick.


Once the pasta is cooked, I toss it into the pan with the mushroom cream sauce, ensuring that every strand of tagliatelle is coated with the luxurious mixture. I always sprinkle some freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of salt to enhance the flavors.


Finally, I serve the mushroom tagliatelle in a warm bowl, garnished with an extra grating of Parmesan and a sprinkle of chopped fresh herbs for a burst of color and freshness.


Mushroom tagliatelle is a dish that never fails to impress. The combination of savory mushrooms, creamy sauce, and delicate pasta is simply irresistible. Whether it’s for a family dinner or a dinner party with friends, this recipe is a winner every time!
