Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the fettuccine, bring back to a boil, and cook pasta over medium heat until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and transfer to a serving bowl.

  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute mushrooms and sausage in butter until mushrooms are tender and sausage is browned and crumbly, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir spinach into mushroom mixture and cook until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Stir ricotta cheese into mushroom mixture until well-mixed; add lemon juice. Pour mushroom mixture over fettuccine and toss to coat.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute any spicy sausage for the pork sausage.

I made this exactly as stated in the recipe. It was good as is but lacked a little flavor for me. To give a little depth to this dish I sauteed up some fresh garlic and thyme and added it. This addition made it more flavorful for me. I love love love how easy this is to make! Read More

I used a variety of wild mushrooms including woodear golden lion cauliflower whole milk ricotta longaniza. fresh spinach and added chili oil with the pepper flakes. It still needed some salt so I topped it with parmesan and myzithra cheeses. I am going to make muffin pan fritattas with the mix instead of using pasta for a brunch option. Read More

This is a really good pasta dish. Only change I made was to add a little salt basil oregano and finely sliced garlic. I also whisked in a little pasta water into the ricotta cheese before adding. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on when serving. Thanks for another recipe to add to my rotation. Read More

I added red onions and tomatoes. I didn't like the taste too well in the end. The ricotta cheese made the texture grainy. Read More
