When menu planning for the week, I try to schedule the more time consuming recipes on the weekends when Chad is around to help with Evan. The easy to put together meals are better during the week, because Evan will only watch me from his high chair for up to 15 minutes at a time. Spaghettini with Mushrooms, Garlic, and Oil is a meal I can easily make during Evan’s 15 minute window. The recipe is also easily adapted. I used baby bella mushrooms, but other types work well too. For a little heat, add some red pepper flakes to taste when sauteing the garlic.
Spaghettini is thin spaghetti. It is slightly thicker than vermicelli (angel hair).
Baby bella mushrooms (crimini, baby portobello) are classified as Agaricus bisporus. The white button mushrooms are the youngest of the species. The baby bellas are slightly older, giving them the darker coloring and a deeper flavor. The portobellos are the oldest and largest, with the most developed, meaty flavor. Baby bella mushrooms are a great source of fiber, potassium, B vitamins, antioxidants, and copper. When preparing the mushrooms, never soak in water. Use a Mushroom/Vegetable Brush to clean them or a damp towel.
