200g shiitake / white button or any mushrooms – cleaned & diced

1 clove garlic – minced

100g bacon or ham or minced meat (optional)

150g pasta – choose your favourite kind! (we like macaroni or penne, its easier to eat then spaghetti but its up to you!)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 tablespoon butter (optional but it tastes much creamier and yummier for kids!)

salt – to taste

freshly ground black pepper – to taste (if kids do not like the spicy taste of pepper, you can omit it during cooking and let adults add to their pasta as they wish later.)

Easy 1-2-3-4 Steps:

  1. Cook pasta as per packaging and strain off the water, save a cup of the pasta water to loosen up the dish later, if required.
  2. Heat olive oil (with butter) on medium heat. Add in the minced garlic and stir-fry until fragrant and beginning to brown (not too brown or it will burn). [optional – add the bacon / ham / minced meat now and stir-fry until 80% cooked, if you want meat, or you can just omit meat to make a vegetarian dish]
  3. Add in the mushrooms and continue to stir-fry until the mushrooms are 80% cooked. Mushrooms will cook down and absorb the delicious garlic butter. Add salt and season to taste.
  4. Add in the cooked pasta and continue to stir-fry, loosening up the pasta and making sure the mushroom and pasta are well combined. If the dish is getting too sticky, add some pasta water (a small spoon at a time) to loosen up the dish.

Plate up and ready to eat! This dish smells wonderful, simple to cook, tastes great!

1小粒蒜头 - 剁碎 (不是一整个蒜头哦~)

150克意大利粉 (请您挑选自己喜欢的意大利粉形状。如果是儿童吃的,建议调勺子可以容易拿的形状。)


1/2汤匙黄油 (不喜欢吃黄油的可以不要加,但是加了会有淡淡的奶油香,小朋友们更爱吃)

盐巴 -少许

黑胡椒粉 -少许(儿童吃的话就不需要加哦~)


  1. 先按照意大利粉包装袋的烹饪法把面条煮熟并把水分倒掉保留1杯的水分备用
  2. 在锅里使用中火热橄榄油后加黄油。油不能太热。然后加入蒜头,炒一炒,到香气扑鼻(不要炒焦哦)再加入肉(培根/火腿或者肉碎)。继续炒一炒,炒到肉8分熟。
  3. 加入蘑菇继续翻炒,直到蘑菇8分熟。让蘑菇吸收美味的蒜头黄油汁。加入少许盐和胡椒粉调味。
