Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in fettuccine, bring back to a boil, and cook over medium heat until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain.

  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring constantly, until slightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Add 1/2 cup coconut milk, oyster mushrooms, red bell pepper, and green bell pepper. Cook and stir until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Stir fettuccine and remaining 1/2 cup coconut milk into the saucepan. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in spring onions and basil. Cook uncovered until sauce is creamy and coats fettuccine, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

Use another type of pasta instead of fettuccine if preferred.

Use fresh or canned coconut milk. If you want it creamier, add more coconut milk.

Should specify canned coconut milk over the kind in the refrigerated section. I purchased the kind in the refrigerated section and I lost the creaminess because of it. Read More

This just didn't work for me. It came out bland and not very savory. Read More

I made this for dinner tonight following the recipe. It might make a good base for a sauce but it lacked flavor. Also there are many kinds of creamy pasta sauces you could name this after but carbonara is not a good one. Traditional carbonara is made with bacon and eggs. This lacks both the flavors and textures of that. I hate to be harsh but there it is. Read More
