Chef Win, who blogs over at lamonsakusina with his blog post: Lamb Chops with Honey and White Balsamic Vinegar

I wish that lamb chops are not that expensive around here, but they are. That's why I can only imagine that tasty treat that Chef Win shared with us from his food blog, last week. His blog is relatively new, but he is not a newbie when it comes to cooking; am sure he has more delicious recipes to share with us.

I wanted to try Tuyo (Dried Fish, usually salted) Pasta, but I forgot to buy the fish, so this is what I came up with: Mushroom-Olives Spaghetti.

  • spaghetti (or your choice of pasta, cooked accdg to package instructions)
  • mushrooms, sliced (I used shiitake -which I soaked in water for two hours- since that's what I have, but you can use canned or any other fresh/dried mushrooms that you have available)
  • olives (pitted, preferrably; you can use black/green or both)
  • all-purpose cream
  • salt, pepper, olive oil, garlic, onion, water (as needed)
  • malunggay powder (optional), or any other fresh herbs as garnish

some of the ingredients used: all purpose cream, olives, and mushrooms

  • Set aside the cooked spaghetti, keep warm.
  • Heat olive oil in pan and saute the sliced garlic and onion. Add the mushrooms and cook until soft (in my case it took around twenty minutes and I had to add a bit of the water where I soaked it).
  • Add the sliced olives (you might want to add in olive oil) and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour in cream and add water (I used the water where I soaked my mushrooms) until you get the consistency that you want.
  • Add pasta and cook over low heat for around half a minute then turn off the heat.
  • Transfer on a plate and sprinkle with a bit of the malunggay powder (which is optional). Or you may opt to add parsley or any other fresh herbs, instead.
  • Best eaten warm.

I forgot that my eldest wasn't so much into olives (he loves mushrooms, though) so he ate sparingly while my youngest loved it! Yes, he LOVES olives. lol. Me too. :D

Your creamy spaghetti with mushroom looks delicious. The olives look like a good addition into the dish.

They look very nice, although I would omit the olives in the pasta dish! :-)
