Despite being a food blogger there do seem to be a lot of days where I just don’t have time to cook, or simply don’t feel like cooking. I am loathe to rely on ready meals or takeaways however, so quick and simple meals like this easy mushroom linguine are my go-to on those kinds of days.

This meal can be ready in about fifteen minutes but is still delicious, satisfying and pretty healthy. Mushrooms are perfect for fast meals as they are quick to prepare and quick to cook and are also very good for you.

For flavour I use garlic, herbs, lemon, parmesan (make sure you use a vegetarian alternative if needed, usually labeled as ‘Italian hard cheese’) and a pinch of chilli flakes – you don’t need lots of fancy ingredients to make a tasty meal; sometimes simple is best.

The linguine is delicious as it is but if you want to make it a little more indulgent then you can use a splash of cream in place of the pasta cooking water to form a creamy sauce.

I have also made this vegan by using a vegan spread in place of the butter (or you can use olive oil), and a vegan parmesan alternative (I use Violife prosociano wedge, which I have found in Sainsbury’s, Tescos and Holland and Barrett (in the UK)).

Whichever way you make it, this easy mushroom linguine is a tasty, easy meal which is perfect for those days when you just need good food fast!

      Hi, I have no idea I’m afraid as I never count calories. There should be a nutrition calculator online that you can put the ingredients into and it will tell you.

    I have a question. Do you add the light cream with the butter to make the light cream sauce? This looks fantastic. However, it’ll just be me eating this. I’ll suffer thru it tho!

      Hi Denella, no, I would add the cream last, once you have added all of the other ingredients. I hope you enjoy it!
