Pasta with shiitake


This recipe was possible due to a lack of ingredients one sunday night. I remember I had some mushrooms on the fridge so I put my imagination to work and end up with this. It’s quite interesting because except for the shiitake mushrooms (which you can replace with another kind of mushrooms) all other ingredients are quite common on your storeroom.


  • Pasta
  • Crushed tomatoes (300 – 400 gr)
  • 200 gr shiitake
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves

Start cutting in very small pieces about 200 gr of shiitake, or another kind of mushrooms. Chop one onion.

Add a bit of oil in a pan, and put on the heat a large pot with water. Add the chopped onion and shiitake in the pan as well as a bit of salt. Stir frequently. Shiitake or mushrooms will drop some water, wait for the water to be almost evaporated and then add 2 crushed garlic cloves, stirring and cooking for about 2 minutes. Then add the crushed tomatoes , mix well and stir frequently. You need to maintain in the heat until the sauce gets the consistence you want, normally about 8 to 10 minutes.

When the water is boiling add a generous amount of salt, and then the pasta and a bit of olive oil or butter. Cook the pasta the amount of time indicated on its package. Then strain the pasta and add to the pan, so the pasta get the flavor of the sauce. You can spread over some fresh chopped basil and or grated cheese.
