Method
    1. Sauté Onions and Garlic:
      In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add finely chopped onions and sauté until translucent. Add minced garlic and continue to sauté for another minute.
    2. Cook Mushrooms:
      Add sliced mushrooms to the pot. Cook until they release their moisture and become golden brown, about 5-7 minutes.
    3. Add Pasta and Liquid:
      Break spaghetti in half and add it to the pot. Pour in the vegetable or chicken broth and heavy cream. Stir gently to combine all ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil.
    4. Simmer:
      Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the pasta simmer in the creamy mushroom sauce. Cook according to the package instructions for al dente pasta, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, about 10-12 minutes.
    5. Add Cheese and Seasoning:
      When the pasta is cooked and the sauce has thickened, stir in grated Parmesan cheese until it melts and the sauce becomes creamy. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Adjust the consistency with a bit of hot water if needed.
    6. Garnish and Serve:
      Remove from heat and garnish with freshly chopped parsley. Serve hot, garnished with extra Parmesan cheese if desired.
    Pro Tips
    • Mushroom Selection: Combine various mushroom types for depth of flavor; cremini, shiitake, and portobello work wonderfully together.
    • Al Dente Perfection: Cook the pasta just until al dente; it will continue cooking slightly in the creamy sauce for the perfect texture.
    • Creamy Consistency: Gradually add the cream to the mushrooms, allowing it to thicken and coat the pasta evenly.
    • Enhanced Flavor: Add a splash of white wine or a sprinkle of nutmeg to elevate the sauce’s depth.
    • Garnish Gracefully: Garnish with a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a drizzle of truffle oil for a touch of gourmet elegance.
