Mushroom pasta for people who can't cook

It's only this year that I've developed a thing for mushrooms (I used to pick them out of my food). I especially like mushrooms in pasta sauce, and after YY pointed out how easy it would be to make mushroom pasta, I decided to give it a go. And it was a mistake, because it is basically crack and way too easy to make. I'll never have to buy another jar of pasta sauce again and will probably die from all this butter I'm going to be eating. I hesitate to call this a recipe because I kind of just wing it with the ingredients, but trust me, if I can do it you can too.

  • Pasta (however much you need)
  • Mushrooms (however many you want based on your preferred mushroom to pasta ratio)
  • Butter (about 2-3 tablespoons for one serving)
  • Garlic (I use crushed garlic from a jar cause I'm lazy, but you can use fresh garlic if you're motivated)
  • Lots of cheese
  • Melt some butter in a pan on medium heat (I start with two tablespoons when I'm making one serving).
  • You can start boiling the pasta in a separate pot at this point.
  • When the butter is melted, throw in a heaped teaspoon of crushed garlic.
  • When it starts making that sizzling noise, add the mushrooms and turn the heat up to medium-high.
  • If it looks like you need to, add another tablespoon of butter (but you should probably stop there).
  • When the mushrooms are cooked (it will start smelling delicious and mushroomy), turn the heat off, drain the pasta (which is usually done by this time) and add the pasta to the pan with the mushrooms.
  • Mix everything up and then add way too much cheese.
And that's it! I guess you could add cream at some point to make it a creamy pasta (we never have any cream on hand), and I think it would taste good with some spinach and chicken if you want to make it really nutritious. I should probably also try and do this with less butter...
