Ingredients:

200g baby chestnut mushrooms, washed and finely sliced
A sprinkle of table salt
320g spaghetti
75g smooth peanut butter of choice
3 crushed garlic cloves
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
3 tbs lemon juice

Method:

1) Cook your spaghetti per packet instructions, in salted boiling water.

2) Use a deep frying pan or casserole dish to make your sauce, placing it at medium heat on the hob. Add a bit of olive oil and throw in your mushrooms first.

3) As your pasta is cooking, scoop out about 500ml of starchy water as this is what you'll use to thicken your sauce. 

4) Now, in your frying pan with the mushrooms, add the peanut butter and the starchy water a bit at a time. This is important, a bit of water at a time and keep stirring until smooth.

5) Add the garlic and chilli flakes. When the sauce is properly thickened to your liking add the lemon juice for some zing.

6) Drain your pasta and mix in the sauce. That's it! Feel free to garnish with some parsley or herb of your choice.
