Mushroom spaghetti

 1 lb spaghetti
 3 tbsp butter
 1 tbsp olive oil
 1 lb mushrooms, cleaned, sliced
 6 garlic
 ½ cup Pecorino Romano cheese, grated
 2 tbsp parsley, chopped

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, 7-10 minutes, or according to package instructions.
Reserve 3/4 cup of the cooking water, drain the pasta and set aside.


Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of butter and the oil in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, and season with salt and pepper. Saute until browned and tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and the remaining 2 tbsp of butter, saute for additional 2 minutes.


Add the cooked spaghetti, reserved water, and cheese into the skillet. Toss and stir until the water has just evaporated and the cheese has melted into the pasta, about 2 minutes. Add the parsley and toss once more to combine. Serve in a shallow bowl, sprinkling with additional grated cheese over each serving.
