Mushroom Pasta | Easy and Quick Macaroni Using Mushrooms | Lunch Box Idea By Masterchefmom


Mushroom Pasta

Hi Supermoms,

Let me share a secret with you....

I love Pasta 💖 .  I am always excited to make different kinds of pasta . Recently I had shared the Macaroni Pie Recipe with all of you. Hope you try it out soon. 

Today, I am sharing a tasty and easy to make pasta dish using mushrooms. It comes together so quickly and is a perfect lunch box recipe too. You can always personalise the dish depending upon your taste preference. You can use vegetables of your choice and keep the pasta more colourful. 

Even without any sauce, this pasta is sure to impress everyone. Here is a special tip for those packing the pasta for lunch box. Just add a few tablespoons of water that you have used to boil pasta. This way, the pasta does not dry up and is super fresh and tasty during lunch time. 

Now, let me share the recipe...

Mushroom Pasta | Mushroom Macaroni By Masterchefmom

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves: 1 adult or 2 children
1 cup = 250 ml cup


1 cup macaroni (you can use pasta of your choice)
12 button mushrooms (1 box)
2-3 garlic cloves( finely chopped)
1 onion( thinly sliced)
1/4 cup coloured bell peppers
2-3 tsp black or green olives (optional)
4-5 basil leaves (fresh or use 1/2 tsp dry seasoning)
1/8 tsp black pepper powder(adjust)
1 tablespoon Olive oil
salt to taste

To Garnish:

grated cheese as per liking


1. Adjust the quantity of pasta depending upon the number of people you are going to serve.
2. Instead of black pepper powder, you can always use white pepper powder or chilli flakes. 
3. Do not throw away the water that you use to cook pasta. 
4. If you are vegan, just skip cheese. Still tastes delicious.


1. Heat a pan with olive oil.
2. Add finely chopped garlic and fry them till they are slightly brown.
3. Add onion and fry them till they turn slightly brown. This is an important step.
4. Now add mushrooms, black pepper powder, salt and allow the mushrooms to cook. 
Note: This step takes 5-7 minutes. You can boil your pasta while the mushrooms are cooking.
5. Once the mushrooms are well done, add coloured bell peppers, olives, basil leaves and let it cook for just 1-2 minutes on low flame. 
6. Drain the pasta and add it to the cooked vegetables.Add grated cheese and a few extra teaspoons of the pasta water, mix and switch off.

That's it! Your Mushroom Macaroni is now ready! Enjoy it with few pieces of toasted bread or pack them for lunch box. Either way they are just so yummy!
